The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was officially founded on Dec. 3, 2007, fulfilling Yow’s vision to support advanced research, extend the quality of life for those battling cancer, and provide hope.“I have to go through it. I accept that, and I’m not panicked about it because the Lord is in control. But it just would be so saddening if I had to go through it and I couldn’t help people. But then I see I’m helping others in a greater way than I ever have. That’s the amazing thing, you know?”- Kay Yow, in a 2007 interview
SUPPORT WOMEN WITH BREAST CANCER Together, with Kay Yow Cancer Fund, we are extending and improving the lives of all women battling cancer by raising money for research and assisting the underserved. Coach Yow believed we could make a greater impact as a collective team. She felt as if basketball coaches, officials, and players not only shared a passion but a community. Her public battle with cancer served as the platform to rally coaches to be a part of one team against one opponent—cancer. Before her passing, she also partnered with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and The V Foundation for Cancer Research to form the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to the fight against women’s cancers.
