The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was founded in 2007 from the vision of the organization’s namesake, coach Kay Yow. The celebrated n-c-state women’s basketball coach and leader of two Olympic gold medal teams was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987 and passed away in 2009. Coach Yow didn’t lose her battle, she simply turned it over to each and every one of us.
