Crestview volleyball team holds Breast Cancer Awareness Night Oct. 7

Published: Monday, October 7, 2013 at 11:41 AM.

“I would like for all the players that played for me at Baker in basketball and volleyball, and all the players that have played for me here, and any friend that has helped out through the years, to be here."

The Holt Volunteer Fire Department, which comprises many of Combest's old Baker students, will be on hand to honor the coach by raising money with T-shirt sales and a donation jar.

The money raised that night will go to the Breast Clinic Charity Fund in Fort Walton Beach.

"They decided to raise money for breast cancer and they wanted to honor me and my five years of being cancer-free," Combest said. "And they let me pick the charity organization that I wanted. The one I wanted is here in Okaloosa County, in Fort Walton Beach.

"Dr. Sandra Hanson and The Breast Clinic Charity Fund is for women that don't have insurance. Because it is so expensive to have mammograms, sonograms and even biopsies.”

Hanson and Scotty Chestnut of the Holt Volunteer Fire Department will talk about charities that help those with breast cancer, Combest said.

Like so many people, Combest never thought she would have breast cancer. As a coach and former athlete she's always made it a point to stay in shape and eat healthy.
