UB coach says wife’s tumors are “almost gone”

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — UB men’s basketball head coach Nate Oats says his wife’s tumors are “almost gone” in a tweet sent out Wednesday.

Oats’ wife has been suffering from double hit lymphoma — a form of cancer. Oats says prayers are being answered and that it is a “long road to go to eradicate it all.”

Iowa State Athletics recently helped raise more than $12,000 to assist with Oats’ wife’s medical bills.
