Debbie Ryan was the head coach at a Division I women’s basketball program when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2000.

She used her own coaching philosophy to help during treatment, and relied on the support of family, coaching staff, players, and the university community. She also bonded with fellow pancreatic cancer patient Emily Couric, and together they outlined their ideal cancer center, now the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center.

Debbie reminds other cancer patients to stay balanced and approach treatment “one foot in front of the other.”
