Rally for Rhyan

While on GA shift last Monday, I worked on an update story about Rhyan Loos, daughter of MU assistant men’s basketball coach, Brad Loos and his wife, Jen.

Rhyan Loos is a 6-year-old girl who has been fighting cancer for over a year. After being clear of cancer for 6 months, she relapsed in November when a tumor was found on her brain.

Since her first diagnosis, the Loos family has received an overwhelming amount of support form not only the university and city of Columbia, but also the basketball community as a whole.

I first heard about #RallyForRhyan last spring while I was at the Rally for Rhyan basketball game with the pep band and have been following it since.

I enjoyed having the opportunity to tell her Rhyan’s story as well as promote the events that will be going on this weekend that will go towards funding research for neuroblastoma.
