VU Pink Out!
The special Pink Out! event is part of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) “Play4Kay” breast cancer awareness program, named in honor of former North Carolina State University women’s head basketball coach Kay Yow. She was a past president and founding member of WBCA, and was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987. Yow passed away in 2009 after her third bout with the disease.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer among women in the United States and the National Cancer Institute estimates that 235,030 women and men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and more than 40,000 people will die from the disease.
