Monday, June 27, 2016 – We Back Pat
In 2011 some family members happened to be in Knoxville, Tennessee when it was announced that legendary and Hall of Fame basketball coach, Pat Summitt, had been diagnosed with the early onset on Alzheimer’s. Immediately the University of Tennessee began to show their support with these shirts. Knowing the basketball and sports fan that I am my family bought me one.
Today our thoughts and prayers go to the immediate, extended and basketball families of Coach Summitt and to all families, friends and caregivers who have loved ones who suffer this horrible disease. May the medical community soon find a cause, treatment and cure for Alzheimer’s. Meanwhile, We Back Pat! And all the others.
She was indeed a legend at UT, my home state. Thanks for your post today.
