Hope is a Team Sport

Hope is a Team Sport

It’s basketball season and we love it! If you’re a fan of the sport, you’ll usually see that those who exhibit incredible teamwork hold the strongest win-loss records. Their players are unselfish enough to give up the ball when a teammate has a better look at the basket. They also know when to work together to create two-on-one pressure in a defensive situation.

In life, just as on the court, we can do more (and overcome more) when we work together. Friends can encourage healthy habits, like being proactive with your health or scheduling a mammogram. Breast cancer survivors often share that their loved ones gave them the courage to endure exhausting and painful treatments. Here at NBCF, we absolutely could not achieve our mission of Helping Women Now without the financial support of our sponsors, fundraisers and donors or the partnership of the medical facilities we fund across the U.S.

Nancy Lieberman, Basketball Hall of Famer of the Texas Legends, and breast cancer survivor

Now we have teamed up with the Texas Legends, NBA D-League team, to honor women in the Dallas-Ft. Worth community affected by breast cancer. Nancy Lieberman, Basketball Hall of Famer of the Texas Legends, shares that “Breast Cancer does not discriminate against anyone. It’s a battle we all must fight together, both women and men.” As the first female coach of a professional men’s basketball team, Nancy is well qualified to speak on the issue of men and women successfully working together to make a difference. Her bio as a player and coach is quite impressive, but we’re even more inspired by Nancy’s commitment to giving hope to others, including women affected by breast cancer.

If you’re in the DFW area, please join us on February 7th for the Texas Legends game against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers! FREE tickets are available for our supporters–get them today!
