Lauren Hill Reaches Her Goal of raising $1 Million for Cancer Research
Lauren Hill, Ohio college basketball player, has reached her goal of raising $1 million in donations by the end of the year. Hill has been collecting donation for cancer research. On Tuesday, Hill had hosted a television show for The Cure Starts Now. After the telethon, the basketball player's fundraising efforts reached $1,159,374.
Hill is a 19-year-old women's basketball player. Her story is tragic and went viral online. She came to know about her form of brain cancer known as DIPG before her senior season in high school. Still, Hill played four games and scored ten points.
Her health has been worsening and forcing her not to enroll in school and play her favorite game. Hill is still affiliated with her basketball team and helping the team's coach to program this season.
Hill has been battling a rare and terminal brain cancer. Since November, she has helped raise fund for cancer research and treatment through The Cure Starts Now. According to fundraising website, LayUp4Lauren.org, about 3,107 donors have helped to raise $1,110,344 fund by about 6 pm Tuesday. Adding to that, about 400 additional donors have given $33,000 in less than one hour after 6 pm.
A telethon on Tuesday helped a lot to reach the fundraising goal until the deadline expired. The deadline has been met, but people who still want to give donations, can continue to contribute at LayUp4Lauren.org through Wednesday.
Hill has completed her playing career at Mount St. Joseph University. Earlier this month, her family posted on Facebook that although Hill has completed her playing, she will remain an honorary coach for the team.
According to the initial prognosis for Hill, she might not live beyond December, but Hill is still fighting against cancer.
