I asked Debby Jennings, University of Tennessee Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations, how much mail Coach Pat Summitt has received since announcing Aug. 23 that she has early-onset dementia.
“Thousands and thousands of emails, cards, letters, prayer cloths, holistic remedies – such an outpouring of love from so many people from around the world,” Jennings said. “It has been truly incredible and very touching for all of us to see.”
