Yow! Kay Heads Back to Chemo, Doing Well

N.C. State women’s basketball coach Kay Yow is receiving chemotherapy again, she said Wednesday. Yow told WRAL she resumed chemotherapy six weeks ago.

She said she is likely to be on chemotherapy for three to four months and then, if all progresses well, will return to hormonal treatments.

Asked about side effects of chemotherapy, she said, “You always have some, but I certainly have a head start on dealing with some of them.”

Overall, she said, “I’m doing well.”
Yow's original diagnosis came way back in 1987. Her strength and composure should help her defeat this opponent from the inside.
