SHARE Amazing #ViralVideo of Lauren Hill with inoperable brain tumor Scoring twice in Final Game

10,000 fans watched the game between Mount St. Joseph and Hiram College. Lauren Hill the 19-year-old freshman forward with an inoperable brain tumor scored the first basket of the game 17 seconds. The schools moved the game forward so Hill would be well enough to play since doctors she had only a few months to live. She wore sunglasses and headphones due to headaches and nausea caused by the medicine. “I never thought I would play on a college court, put my feet on the floor and feel the vibration of the crowd,” Lauren told ESPN after the game. “This game has been amazing and everything that happened today was amazing. This is a really good day.”
 Arena employees volunteered their time to work the game. After Hill scored her first shot, both teams gave her a standing ovation. Hill, who is right handed, made her shots with her left hand since the tumor has affected her coordination. The crowd started yelling, “We love Lauren! We love Lauren!” So, with 30 seconds left to play, she scored again and her team won with a 66-55 victory.
