Evans is the ambassador for The NephCure Foundation, a nonprofit supporting the efforts to cure kidney disease. Evans has focal segmental glomerular sclerosis, an incurable kidney disease, and the same one that drove NBA superstar Alonzo Mourning to a kidney transplant.
Evans appears on the nonprofit’s homepage to help drive donations and she meets with patients (many of them children, according to a NephCure Foundation spokesperson) and their families.
Evans’ story and her philanthropic efforts have appeared in Sports Illustrated, the AP, Oklahoma’s NewsOK.com, as well as other outlets covering the NCAA tournament and the graduating senior’s final year of participation.
