USC-Aiken's Legg Recovering From Cancer Treatment

Posted:

AIKEN, SC -- Former USC-Aiken basketball player Meredith Legg is doing well in her recovery from a rare form of eye cancer, according to her family.

Legg was diagnosed last month after experiencing vision problems in her left eye. She began radiation treatments on April 16th in Philadelphia.

According to her mother, Meredith is doing okay, but she has lost almost ten pounds. According to Meredith’s doctors she will take a little longer to recover due to the size of the tumor and the pain that was related to her tumor.

Legg, who became the program's all-time leading scorer during her senior season in March, should start feeling a great deal better over the course of the next three months in her efforts to get back to “normal.”

A special fundraising effort for Meredith Legg has been established. Automobile decals with Meredith’s jersey number of 24 are on sale for a minimum of $5 and they are available through the USC Aiken women’s basketball office, or through any USC Aiken women’s basketball coach or player.

The fund-raising efforts goals are to raise money for Meredith and to visually show her all the support she has when she returns to campus and the community. All proceeds will go to help defray the expenses acquired by Meredith and her family during this fight against cancer.

There has also been a Cancer Fund set up in Meredith's honor.

Donations may be made payable to:

The Meredith Legg Cancer Fund
