Gary Thompson Head Shot

"The Side-Out Foundation brings together the two most important things to me, volleyball and metastatic breast cancer. I like one a lot, and I really dislike the other one. A lot. Bringing them together has the power to make things better. I'm so thankful to the Cougars and the Houston volleyball community as they come together to make things better, too. MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston was an important part of the many tomorrows Maureen and I had together after her initial diagnosis while pregnant with our now 18 year old daughter. Without the MDACC team, I would have been a single father of three (a newborn, 3-year old, and 5-year old). Maureen passed of metastatic breast cancer when our kids were 15, 13, and 10 1/2. We had more tomorrows. Your efforts will ensure more tomorrows for others."

- Gary Thompson, Side-Out Board Chair
