"I believe God has the last say," Lauren Hill told the Cincinnati Enquirer, even as she admitted her "body is shutting down."
The Mount Saint Joseph freshman basketball player's matter-of-fact declaration of faith comes amid a battle with inoperable brain cancer known as DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).
Hill knows "there's nothing I can do to stop it" — but she keeps going anyway.
When doctors said she may not survive the year, there was Hill appearing in Mount Saint Joseph's first home game Saturday — and she scored her team's first two points.
Does she pray? You bet. Of course she asks God to provide a cure, but more to heart of things for Hill is that her family "will fine when" when and if God calls her home.
"They're who I worry about," she told the Enquirer.
In the end, Hill — who's shared her remarkable story of courage with Glenn Beck — wants others to know "that I never give up."
