In case you missed it, here is a great read from our sister paper The East Valley Tribune by Kyle Odegard.

Cystic fibrosis destroyed Tiffany Tate’s dream of playing collegiate basketball.

She doesn’t want to let it destroy her life.

Tate was a star girls basketball player at Chandler High about a decade ago, helping the team to a pair of state titles.

But she also had the debilitating genetic disease, which results in frequent lung infections and other disabilities throughout the body. If untreated, cystic fibrosis results in early death.

Goodbye, college basketball.
