K-State Head Football Coach Bill Snyder, a member of the Johnson Cancer Research Center’s advisory council, announced Feb. 13 that he was being treated for throat cancer. His prognosis was excellent and he completed treatment in time for spring practice.

Since Coach’s announcement, many people have made donations in honor of him and purchased our Fighting for a Cure shirts. We are so grateful to the K-State Family for showing their support in this meaningful way. As is our protocol, we will notify Coach Snyder of every donation made in his honor.

Many fans plan to wear their Fighting for a Cure shirts to the Purple/White Spring Game April 22 in honor of Coach Snyder. We have shirts in stock and they are $20 each. Learn more on our website.

Many friends will also wear their shirts to the home football game and elsewhere Oct. 14 for the 4th Annual K-State Fighting for a Cure Day, when the Marching Band will do a special tribute and we’ll have a tailgate party.
