12-Year Old Joins KWC Women's Basketball Team

Allyson Funk is the newest addition to the KWC women's basketball team, even though she's only 12 years old.

Funk was born with the rare genetic disorder Fanconi Anemia, a disorder that causes bone marrow failure and many other problems. She was paired with the Panthers through Team Impact and joined the team as an official member on Tuesday evening when she signed her national letter of intent. 

Allyson attends most of the women's home games and sits on the KWC bench, cheering on her teammates and serving as a symbol of inspiration for the Panthers and anyone who has heard her story.
