Hayford brings hope to Seattle U Men’s Hoops
When Jim Hayford came to Seattle 17 years ago, basketball was the last thing on his mind. “My daughter, in Kindergarten, was diagnosed with leukemia. and we came to Seattle Children’s Hospital,” Hayford said. It was a battle Jayme Hayford ultimately won. “She’s doing great. She beat cancer. But it took five years of her life, and our life,” Jim Hayford said. “Fortunately, Fred Hutchinson, Children’s Hospital, that’s something that brings hope to people, and saved my daughter’s life.”
