USM’s Joye Lee McNelis receives good news

An update now on Southern Miss head women’s basketball Coach Joye Lee McNelis who has good news to share on her battle with stage four lung cancer.

The long-time head coach of the Lady Eagles tells News 25 she is on track to start targeted therapy sometime next week by taking a daily pill instead of jumping into chemotherapy.

Foundation one test results show a mutation from the original diagnosis of adeno-carcinoma back in February 2017.

McNelis says the doctors will re-evaluate her progress in four weeks as she continues to coach and she thanks everyone for their prayers during this trying time.
