United in the effort to make the fight against cancer a national priority, UNC coach Roy Williams and U.S. Congressman Mike McIntyre recently shared time together on Capitol Hill discussing this important issue. On Sept. 10, Williams participated in a number of events as part of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network Leadership Summit. In addition, he spoke to several hundred business leaders at the N.C. Business Summit organized by McIntyre. McIntyre, who is a member of the Congressional Cancer Caucus and Chairman of the Youth Sports Caucus, stated, “Coach Williams’ message of hope and perseverance in the fight against cancer and his work ethic, leadership, character are unparalleled not only in basketball but in all of sports. He is an example for all of us to follow.”
