Rashanda McCants is veteran of cancer's battlefield

Friday, August 07, 2009

Tonight will be Breast Health Awareness Night at Target Center. Lynx players will wear all pink when they play Connecticut at 7 p.m. Pink is one of Lynx rookie Rashanda McCants' favorite colors. She is glad to wear it, especially since her mother, Brenda, a breast cancer survivor, will be at the game. "My mom has been through that struggle, and I've seen that struggle right up front," said McCants, a 6-1 rookie forward. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)
