When & Where
Coach Kill Foundation
At the end of the 2005 football season, Coach Jerry Kill of the Southern Illinois University Salukis had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor on his kidney. During his cancer treatment he befriended other people from southern Illinois who were going through treatment as well. Kill found many of them did not have the same resources that he was "fortunate to be blessed with."
Together with Southern Illinois Healthcare, Coach Kill and his wife Rebecca formed the Coach Kill Cancer Fund. The fund is designed to assist southern Illinois patients and their families with medical costs and other associated expenses.
