The WNBA has come out to combat Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) as they support a terminally ill player's last game.

A number of WNBA players have come out in support of Mount St. Joseph (OH) player Lauren Hill, who will play against Hiram College on Sunday, November 2. The game will be held at Xavier University's Cintas Center.

Washington Mystics center Stefanie Dolson has dedicated her next game in Russia for Spartak to her. Per her Instagram account:

If anyone hasn't heard Lauren's story you should check it out. It has inspired and motivated me to dedicate my next game here in Russia to Lauren and I will be donating to The Cure Starts Now Foundation in her honor! I challenge all of my uconn, Mystics, spartak and WBB fans to join me in donating and spreading the word about Lauren and her wish to play one last game for her Mt.St. Joseph team!!
