Neighbors make Yow’s Christmas bright

Neighbors and friends of N.C. State Women’s Basketball Coach Kay Yow are making sure her Christmas is merry and bright.

They decorated the tree in her yard Monday night with Christmas lights.

Yow has taken a leave of absence as head coach due to the reoccurrence of breast cancer. The coach says she’s thankful for good friends.

“I know many people are praying for me and I know many people are praying for other people, and I’m praying for other people, and I know there’s power in prayer,” Yow said.

Yow was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987. In November, doctors noticed that the cancer was progressing and Yow announced she would take a leave of absence from the team to focus on her health.

Coach Yow ranks as the fifth winningest active NCAA Division I women’s basketball coach.
