South Florida player Alexis Buchman has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and will have to have surgery to remove it.
Bulls pitcher Camryn Dolby organized a GoFundMe page on behalf of her teammate. The fundraiser’s description notes that Buchman felt numbness and tingling in her left hand at the end of July. After medications and a variety of tests, the third-year USF player was initially diagnosed as having had a stroke. Later tests revealed that the cause of Buchman’s issues was a brain tumor.
According to the GoFundMe page, Buchman is scheduled to have surgery on September 16th to remove the brain tumor.
The GoFundMe has raised more than $16,000 as of Monday morning, from nearly 300 individual donors. To contribute to the fundraiser, click here.
