Humans can’t agree on most things, but we can always come together to dislike cancer in whatever form that it shows up.
Myles Rice, a second-year guard at Washington State, announced this week that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and will be sidelined indefinitely as he battles cancer.
“Sometimes we never understand why, but we trust God’s plan. Recently, I received some devastating news that I have been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer that will interrupt my 2022-23 basketball season,” part of the statement read.
“I will beat this heinous disease and will use my success to be a positive inspiration and uplifting testimony for others. My diagnosis has made me desire to dedicate even more of my time and energy to my family’s non-profit organization, the S.O.L.O. Center (Supporting Overcoming Life’s Obstacles).”
“I appreciate all the love and support I have received so far and look forward to the day when I RING THE BELL.”
Rice’s GoFundMe page had already raised over $1,000 in donations out of a $60,000 goal to help fund his battle.
The 19-year-old redshirted last season and was in line to contend for a playing role this year in WSU’s backcourt.
He came to WSU in 2021 as a three-star recruit and one of the top-50 point guards in his class, according to 247Sports.com.
