Good Deeds: Thanking UIS Athletic Department

I would like to thank the University of Illinois Springfield coaches, all the players and athletic staff for writing me an inspiration book and supporting me while I have been sick.

I want to especially thank coach Marne Fauser for putting together a basket for my trip to Children’s Hospital. All the coaches put together a wonderful basket with things I love and it really helped me get through the last couple of days there.

Your support has meant a lot to me and my family. I think the UIS athletic department and players are the best around!
