The 19-year old basketball player for Mount St. Joseph's college in the Cincinnati area has been battling inoperable brain cancer and has become somewhat of a national hero.

Back on November 2nd, Hill made headlines when she scored twice in a game against Xavier in front of nearly 10,000 fans.

And her battle has gone nationwide too.

Today, her family announced that Lauren has entered Hospice care. Doctors had told her she wouldn't make it to Christmas. She is out to try and prove them wrong.

But she's been struggling.

She last played in a game November 21st and she has not been seen out in public much since then.

We hope for the best for her and her family and hope she realizes how many people she has touched with her battle.
