Sharyland Rattlers head boys basketball coach David Keith is no stranger to challenges. Whether in the classroom or on the court, Keith faces the kind of challenges teachers and coaches everywhere have grown accustomed to facing on a daily basis.
Recently, however, Keith has had to face a challenge unlike any he’s faced before. The kind of challenge he cannot draw on his years of on-the-job experience to get through. The kind of challenge he has turned to his faith, his family, his friends and his doctors to help him through. It’s the challenge of cancer.
“I’ve gone to five doctors here and I have a couple of diagnoses,” said Keith. “I’ll be going to M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston this week to see what they have to say there. It’s a tumor and it’s something else that I don’t even know how to explain.”
