CORVALLIS, Ore. -- During the Corvallis Knights 2019 season, Jennifer Beaumont knew something was wrong with her health.

"I saw six different doctors, was given six different progonis without ever having my blood drawn or xrays taken," the Knights Director of Hospitality said.

It wasn't until July of 2020 when doctors diagnosed her with stage 3 lung cancer.

Beaumont has three thoracic surgeries and 40 percent of her right lung tissue was removed before completing 14 weeks of chemotherapy.

"We were told everything was clear," Beaumont said.

Until this past March when doctors found two new aggresively growing tumors.

"It was just what's next," she said.

Beaumont spends her mornings at the radiation and her afternoons at Goss Stadium, managing the Knights food and beverage operations.

"Like everybody who works here with the Corvallis Knights, we all have servant hearts," Beaumont said. "It's not about us. It's about this community, family and making memories."

The Corvallis Knights created limited edition cancer awareness shirts with No Dinx. All proceeds will benefit patients at the Samaritan Cancer Research Center. Shirts are available for 20 dollars until July 25th.
