Earlier this fall it was announced that Rhyan Loos, the 5-year old daughter of Missouri assistant coach Brad Loos, was diagnosed with a form of cancer known as neuroblastoma. The Missouri family, as well as other teams throughout the college basketball and sports world, wasted no time rallying up support for Rhyan and her family.
Missouri began the #RallyForRhyan campaign, which provides both emotional and financial support for Rhyan and her family as she fights cancer. Thursday the Missouri men’s basketball team visited Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in Columbia for a rally held in Rhyan’s honor, with Rhyan’s classmates (and the rest of the school) receiving special #RallyForRhyan wristbands.

For those wishing to donate to the #RallyForRhyan campaign, more information on how to do so can be found here.
