Former BYU Coach Speaks
MOOSIC — Dave Rose has been involved in Coaches vs. Cancer for more than 20 years. But The former longtime Brigham Young University men’s basketball coach got a new perspective 10 years ago when he was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer.
“The biggest change is that we always helped the kids or the parents as almost kind of like, ‘We don’t know how you feel, but we’re going to try to help you get through it,’ ” he said. “But now we know how you feel and we’re still going to try to help you get through it.”
Rose beat the disease and travels the country attending galas like the Spring Fling at Glenmaura National Golf Club on Saturday, where he was the keynote speaker.
