Lauren Hill's big game
Wednesday December 3rd, 2014

Lauren Hill's family announced on her Facebook page on Tuesday that they have signed her up for hospice care.

Her family said they originally planned to do so in October or early November, but it got delayed to allow her to play in her first college basketball game on Nov. 2. Hill, who has an inoperable brain tumor, scored her first career points in that game and was later named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

The game had a sold out crowd of more than 10,000 fans and raised more than $70,000 for pediatric brain cancer research.

Doctors have told Hill that she won't live beyond December. From the Facebook post, which can be read in full here:

"We are excited to have additional resources coming to our home. We have already been able to get supplies to help make things easier here at home."

"Overall [Lauren] has been in good spirits this week and staying busy with special projects. In a funny, goofy mood tonight."
