BYU men's basketball coach Dave Rose was among more than 600 cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and their families from all 50 states and nearly every congressional district gathered on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on Sept. 28, 2010 to lobby their members of Congress in support of sustained funding for cancer research and prevention and early detection programs. In this photo, Rose poses with fellow members of the Utah delegation of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. The coaches, who are members of Coaches vs. Cancer, a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches, are putting aside their on-court rivalries and teaming up to ask Congress to make funding cancer research and programs a national priority.
