Lauren Hill practices only a few days a week now. It's unlikely she'll play in another basketball game, but she's accepted whatever happens.

The Mount St. Joseph freshman player is taking life day-to-day as a cancerous tumor in her brain grows. She got to play in one game on Nov. 2 after the NCAA gave permission to move it up because of her worsening condition. She made the first and the last baskets against Hiram College in front of more than 10,000 people.

As part of her final push, Hill has been raising money to research and treat the type of cancer that is taking her life. A big donation on Tuesday pushed the total raised to more than $324,000.
