How Paqui Kelly, the Other Half of “Fighting Irish” Football Coach Brian Kelly, Marked up a Big Win against Breast Cancer

Paqui Kelly10 years ago, Paqui Kelly was a 9th grade teacher and wife of Notre Dame Football Coach Brian Kelly, (then the coach of the Central Michigan University football team). Although she did not have a history of breast cancer in her family and she was one of six sisters, her doctor talked her into having a mammogram at the age of 37 as part of a physical exam – the first one in her life. That test saved her life and shaped much of the work of the Kelly Cares Foundation. This is her compelling story of how life sent her an unexpected and eye opening challenge. Listen here to Dr. Marc Hardy interview Paqui as she opens her heart and talks about how modern medicine, love, family, faith and community helped her survive and give back.
