Coach Andrea Gaston Given Cancer-Free Diagnosis

    June 16, 2017

    USC Women’s Golf Head Coach Andrea Gaston, diagnosed with uterine cancer earlier this year, underwent surgery in late May and this week was given a cancer-free diagnosis by her doctors.

    Gaston, who has led USC to three national titles and an active streak of 12 straight top 5 national finishes, including a tie for third this season, is resting comfortably and will undergo preventative radiation treatments later this summer.

    The always-on-the-go Gaston is now under doctors orders to rest and regain her strength.

    “I have been completely overwhelmed and inspired by all the texts, emails, cards and flowers that I have received in the past few weeks,” Gaston said. “This has all been so encouraging to me, and I am extremely grateful to everyone for their prayers, love and support.

    “My doctor knows how I operate, but she wants me to rest for the next few weeks to completely heal. She told me not to try to be Wonder Woman, so I’m following her advice. I can’t wait to return to full strength."
