January 26, 2014 Baylor (Women)
Elizabeth McMurray of Tulsa, Oklahoma was the Coaches vs. Cancer honoree at the Jan. 26 Women's Basketball game (Baylor vs. OSU) sponsored by the Tulsa Shock. Elizabeth is a senior Microbiology student at Oklahoma State University and plans to apply to medical school in the spring. In the photo above she is joined by her parents, Adrienne and Rusty, her brothers, Forrest and Kadrian, and her boyfriend, Ryan. Her favorite part of attending Oklahoma State has been her role as Homecoming Director for Alpha Chi Omega the past two years in America’s Greatest Homecoming and going to Cowboy sporting events.
In October of 2013, Elizabeth was diagnosed with stage 2A Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It has been a difficult road but she credits her faith, family, friends, and also her Cowboy family for keeping her outlook positive. She has completed half of her treatments, but on January 17th, she was declared cancer free! She must continue with the rest of her treatments, but her family and friends are very pleased with the good news.
