Donna Calipari has passed away

Coach Cal Tweeted out this morning that his mother, Donna, passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer. Calipari had been open about his mother’s situation, even using a video on his website in May to encourage fans to pray for her health. He was again candid this morning through his Twitter account, issuing this statement:

As most of you know, my mom, Donna, has been battling cancer for several months. On Sunday, she lost her brave fight. On behalf of my dad, my two sisters, Ellen & all of our family we want to thank the Big Blue Nation for all their prayers, cards, letters & support shared w/my mom during these days. Your warmth uplifted her and all of us. We hope you will all respect our privacy during this period & know that we are grateful for being part of the Big Blue family. God Bless & thank you – Coach Cal & Family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Coach Cal and his family.
