Good things come to those who love...and never give up

This is a story you won't soon forget - this story touched us in more ways than one seeing as my Uncle George battled a nasty form of brain cancer similar to Lauren's that grows tentacles, is resistant to current medicine, and will ultimate take the life of the individual.  Lauren's motto "Never Give up".

But also this young woman's Coach, Dan "Bear" Benjamin, is a dear friend who has kept his love of coaching alive no matter how many times he was told to "give it up".  He is an amazing teammate, friend, coach, and father. He is like a brother to my husband and someone we are honored to call Uncle Bear.  Recently named the Head Women's Basketball Coach for Mount Saint Joseph University I know that he was put in this place and time for this young lady.....

Today is Lauren's last game, and Dan "Bear" Benjamin's coaching debut in college basketball.  Today they will both enter the arena one person - and exit another. Forever changed - forever touched by one another.

God Bless you both.
