Crestview volleyball team holds Breast Cancer Awareness Night Oct. 7

Combest — who continued coaching while battling cancer — said she thinks leading her teams helped her through the tough times.

"I think while I was going through that it gave me a focus point," she said. "People that can focus on something are better at what they do and they don't dwell on being sick.

"I know basketball and volleyball helped me do that at that time."

People battling breast cancer, breast cancer survivors and those who have lost loved ones to breast cancer will be recognized during Monday’s ceremony.

As much as it will be a night of breast cancer awareness, Combest also wants it to be a celebration of life.

"I just want to have the people that helped me go through what I went through to be here to celebrate my five years clean," she said.
