    That 'Hel-LO-va' Story Keeps Getting Better
    UF soccer player Lauren Evans was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia last December, but four months of chemotherapy have her in a "deep remission," her father said.
    Chris Harry UF Senior Writer

    Lauren Evans told us. Becky Burleigh told us. The Florida soccer team told us. Hers, they all said, was going to be a "hel-LO-va" story.

    Lo, a freshman on the UF soccer team last season, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive and lethal form of cancer last November. Doctors were encouraged they found the disease early enough for treatment to make an impact. In December, she began the first of four debilitating chemotherapy cycles — 30 to 35 days on, three to four days off, repeat — that ended in late-April, with the patient leaving the hospital after more than four months.

    "It's gone. They feel like they got it," said Jerome Evans, father of this amazing and strong young lady who goes by the nickname of "Lo."

    Always make it more fun when you know the person in front of you. That way when your team hits a walk off HR to Omaha you can beat the living daylights of the poor fellas back in front of you. Sorry about that John! I was just trying not to fall on you. Great memories my friend.
