Was sad to hear this on the evening news (just the other day there was a story on singer Glenn Campbell having alzheimer's)... but she seems pretty confident that it's not going to keep her down.

"I feel better just knowing what I’m dealing with. And as far as I’m concerned it’s not going to keep me from living my life, not going to keep me from coaching," Summitt told the Knoxville News Sentinel."

Pat Summit is a legend
That's very sad. I'm sorry to hear that.
I can't for the life of me remember why I clicked on this thread.

Sucks. Great coach, great lady.
On the bright side, she will get to meet new people every day.

(Hoping for the best, in all seriousness. Great coach.)
