College basketball player Lauren Hill is getting hospice care at home as the inoperable tumor in her brain grows.

Hill played in a Division III basketball game with Mount St. Joseph on Nov. 2 despite the tumor, which was diagnosed a year ago. She made layups for the first and last baskets of the game. Hill also has helped to raise more than $324,000 for cancer research and treatment.

Her family said on a Facebook post Wednesday that the 19-year-old freshman is experiencing more severe symptoms, including headaches, lack of energy and dizziness. She's also having trouble sleeping. Hospice care will provide additional in-home assistance.

The post says she's in good spirits and staying busy with special projects.
