Re “Coaching Waterford gives him the strength to fight stage 4 cancer” (Page 1C, Jan. 7): My husband and I read the article about the Waterford High girls basketball coach. This article was so inspiring, the coach has stage 4 melanoma and is coaching the girls basketball team and doing a great job. I don’t know if any of us can imagine the strength of character this takes; what an incredible person. This guy won the Bronze Star and is a Purple Heart recipient. He is definitely in our prayers. This article is inspiring, when you think you’re down and out keep plugging away. Joshua Whitfield is no quitter.
