McCaffery's to receive Fighting Spirit Award

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery, and wife Margaret McCaffery have been selected to receive the Fighting Spirit Award by the American Cancer Society.

The McCaffery's are being honored for bringing attention to the cause. Last month the Cofferdams announced plans to create a new cancer center focused on helping young patients battling cancer. Their son had been diagnosed with the disease, but after treatment, Patrick McCaffery recently received a clean scan. Patrick, an 8th grader, has also already verbally committed to play basketball for his father at Iowa.

The award will be presented during the annual Coaches vs. Cancer Basket Ball this September in Troy, New York.
