Hoops For A Cause Supporting Finnley Grace

For the past three years, basketball coaches and players from the Frontier Conference have worked together to help raise money for different worthy causes in the state of Montana through Hoops For A Cause.  This year, Hoops For A Cause will benefit Finnley Grace Foster. 

Finnley has had a heck of a lot happen in her short life.  She's been in and out of the hospital ever since she was about 5 months old, and was just released from another stay in Seattle this afternoon.  She is a fighter and has battled every step of the way.  She was diagnosed with SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency), has had a pair of bone marrow transplants, and most recently suffered from the effects of seizures.  Far too much for a 5-year-old girl.  Any donations will help with medical expenses and travel as well as everyday bills, as both of her parents have not been able to work because Finnley cannot be in school or daycare.  They are also busy taking her to 4-5 appointments per week and consistently traveling out-of-state.

Finnley is the  daughter of Pat Foster and Katie Whitmore.  Pat has been a longtime official in Montana, and worked for 5 years as an official in both men's and women's basketball in the Frontier.

To learn more about Finnley and her battles, please find her page on Facebook by entering Prayers For Finnley Grace.

Coaches from EVERY Frontier Conference school have agreed to put on a virtual basketball clinic for coaches throughout Montana July 29th and 30th.  Their hope is that the clinic will raise awareness for Finnley and help get people directed to this site who can help her.

Coaches interested in signing up for the virtual clinic can email Chris Mouat at MSU-Northern to register.

In advance, thank you for your support.
