Fundraising effort launched to help SDSU baseball player who is battling cancer

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A fundraising effort is underway for a San Diego State student-athlete who has been battling cancer throughout the season.

Sophomore Chad Bible, an outfielder on the Aztecs baseball squad, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin's lymphoma in January, according to the university's athletics department.

Bible has been undergoing treatment in the Los Angeles area, the school said.

Despite missing only playing in seven games this season, the school said Bible continues to be "an integral part of the Aztec baseball team throughout his ongoing treatment and continues to inspire his teammates, coaches and Aztecs everywhere."

Under NCAA rules, fans and supporters of the team are not allowed to raise funds directly for Bible because of his status as a student-athlete.

However, the athletics department and the school can do so. A fund has been established for Bible under SDSU's Strive campaign.

The school said: "Funds collected will be used for medical and treatment-related expenses. Funds raised in excess of the support needed for those expenses will be donated to a charitable cause, per NCAA bylaws."
