In the News...

Did you notice the pink shoes that BOYS were wearing on TV tonight? Many did! Michelle's phone lit up with text messages and other phones were ringing during and after the BYU vs. Colorado St. game. During the game Alexis was specifically mentioned as part of the reason that the entire BYU men's basketball team wore the bright pink shoes to help raise cancer awareness.

"The BYU men’s basketball team donned the pink shoes to promote cancer awareness en route to an 84-76 win against Colorado State University Wednesday night in the Marriott Center.

Wearing pink was something special for the the Cougars, whose coach, Dave Rose, has overcome pancreatic cancer. It also allowed the men’s basketball team to show support for women’s basketball player Alexis Kaufusi, who was recently diagnosed with cancer and had her season cut short this year."

Also there are a lot of articles written on when rivals at the University of Utah wore their purple shirts for Alexis as well. Click here to see that article.

And here is a sign that was made by Steve Day and his grandson Landon at last nights BYU game. It means 'have courage' in Tongan.
