This from the Indianapolis Star a couple of days ago.

"WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Two words.
"That’s all Sharon Versyp needed to hear.
“'Cancer free,' the veteran coach of the Purdue women’s basketball program said.
"That was April 24.
"More than two months later, Versyp is back in her office and overseeing her daily duties. She actually returned to work May 30. She’s been pushing forward in recruiting, conducting summer camps and preparing the Boilermakers during individual and team workouts for the upcoming season.
“'When you get that news, you feel great, no matter what,' Versyp said.
"She’s not 100 percent yet but working toward that number. A check-up at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York in August is another step in the process.
“'I have no limitations,' Versyp said. 'They told me to go back to my normal things but listen to your body.'
"In March, Versyp was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer."

I have made no bones about not being a big fan of Coach Sharon Versyp, while or since she coached at UMaine. But, especially considering the recent loss of my wife to ovarian cancer, I would wish this curse on no one.

Godspeed, Coach. May it turn out to be 100 percent when you go for the checkup next month.
