As a freshman at Baylor two years ago, Taylor Roth started having some health issues. Eventually, she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and told she probably had less than a year to live. Thankfully, a later diagnosis found that she has decades, not months, to live.
Now a junior psychology major, Roth’s health hasn’t stopped her from pursuing her goals. One is to use her psychology degree to help cancer patients deal with their diagnosis. Another? To appear on Jeopardy!
The Plano, Texas, native can now cross that one off the list; Roth appeared on the show yesterday during Jeopardy!‘s college championship (in a green-and-gold Baylor sweatshirt, of course). Though she didn’t win, she did get a consolation prize of sorts: the photo above with host Alex Trebek as the pair do a “sic ‘em!”
Sic ’em, Taylor!
