Pat Head Summitt- Winningest Coach in America- Diagnosed with early onset dementia
[link to www.wate.com]

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Lady Vols head basketball coach Pat Summitt says she has been diagnosed with early onset dementia.

In text and video statements released Tuesday, Summitt, 59, said she talked to doctors after the 2010-2011 season ended about her health concerns.

"After consulting with my local physicians, I decided to visit the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota," she said. "Earlier this summer, the doctors at the Mayo Clinic diagnosed me with early onset dementia ("Alzheimer's Type") at the age of 59."

Summitt said she plans to continue to coach the Lady Vols.

"Obviously, I realize I may have some limitations with this condition since there will be some good days and some bad days," she said.

According to the Mayo Clinic, dementia is really a group of symptoms that "affect intellectual and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily functioning." Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia.

Since the announcement there has been an outpouring of support from former Lady Vols players, UT officials, and fans.
