HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

Huntington Intermediate School hosted a "Hoops of Hope" basketball game Tuesday night to raise money for the American Cancer Society organization Relay for Life.

The fundraiser was also a benefit game for fifth grade reading teacher Kim Teer, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma two years ago.

"I found out two years ago I have Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma. It's mainly in men over 70, so I'm very out of the box with what I have. I started chemo treatments two years ago. It didn't really do a whole lot," said Teer.

"So last, not this past December, but December of 2011, I had a stem cell transplant and was gone for about five months from school and home, but everyone in the community, my family, my friends, my co-workers,everyone supported me," Teer said.

Teer says her last test results were not good, but she has found peace and is grateful for everyone who has showed their support.

"It's overwhelming to have so much support. You know you have friends and you know you have people that love you, but until you are put in these kinds of situations, you don't understand the depth of that love and support," said Teer.
