|Leslie Andrew was the women's basketball|
team captain for two years.
“Leslie is one of my greatest gifts from UC. The university could not have recruited a more talented, intelligent, dedicated, loyal and inspirational basketball player,” said friend and UC Alum Anna Barrett. “We are indeed a Bearcat family.”
Following Leslie’s diagnosis, she underwent extensive surgery and went into remission thereafter. Unfortunately, after a year in remission, Leslie’s cancer returned. Since then, Leslie has undergone radiation treatments and immunotherapy. She is currently hoping to be part of a cancer treatment trial in Maryland.
“If you ever had the chance to watch Leslie on the basketball court, you know she is a fighter,” explained Allison Hoehn, UC alum and friend of Leslie.

Northwest School District and is very active in her community.
The UC Community will also show their support for Leslie at the women’s basketball game on Feb. 23 at Fifth Third Arena. Bearcat fans are encouraged to attend the game to show their support for Leslie and other Bearcats fighting cancer.
“We are excited and grateful that the women’s basketball team will honor Leslie and her family during pre-game on Feb. 23rd," said Hoehn. “We hope everyone will come out and support the fight against cancer while supporting one of UC’s own."
