Oklahoma Thunder Fan Who Sinks Shot Will Use Money For Wife's Cancer Treatment
by Corey Hjalseth, KHQ Local News Contributor - email
One fan was plucked from the stands at the Oklahoma City Thunder game
on Tuesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena and tasked with making a
half-court shot for $20,000. The joy he shows after making the shot runs
deep, because the money should help in his wife's battle against
reports Heath Kufahl took the amazing shot between the third and fourth
quarters of the eventual Thunder win over the Lakers, 122-105. When it
went in, Kufahl ran around the court like an NBA player dropping the game-winner in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
20 large is a huge deal, so his excitement is certainly warranted.
Still, the story is far more powerful when you hear more about this
youth basketball coach from Del City, Oklahoma
It's always cool to see someone make that shot, but for the Kufahls and
their seven children, it means a bit more: Heath's wife, Jenni, was
diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in October of 2012. The money will
be used for mounting medical bills.
