Support Former Cal WBB Student-Athlete, Rama N'Diaye

Rama N’diaye, a native of Dakar, Senegal, crossed the globe to join the Cal Family in the Fall of 2006. She embarked on a 5 year career for the Golden Bears which saw her teams make 3 consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament, a Sweet 16 appearance, and a WNIT Championship.

In the summer of 2007, she was a member of the Senegalese National Team before sustaining a significant knee injury in March of 2008. That summer, she led her Cal team on an international team trip to Tunisia and Senegal, where she was able to introduce her Bear family to her immediate and extended Senegalese family and friends. Despite not being able to play due to her knee injury, she served as our very own personal tour guide, exposing her teammates, coaches and staff to the amazing traditions and culture of Africa. It was a life changing trip for everyone involved.

As a testament to Rama’s sheer will and determination, she was able to return to the court following her injury and compete in her final season in Berkeley in 2010-2011. Rama then went on to play professional basketball for three seasons in Iran, Spain, and Turkey. Since her retirement in 2014, Rama has been living and working in San Diego. Unfortunately, in July, 2016 she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer at the young age of 29. She is currently undergoing aggressive treatment at The Moore Cancer Center through UC San Diego, where she is proving to be a worthy opponent in the fight against this disease. As a result of the side effects of her treatments, Rama has not been able to consistently work and therefore has sustained significant financial hardship. It is our goal as a Cal Family to help support Rama in her fight against Breast Cancer emotionally, spiritually and financially.

As a result, Rebounds for Rama will allow our extended Cal Family to participate in that end goal, once again proving that our support extends well beyond the hardwood. Donations may be made based on the number of total rebounds that the current Cal team secures over the course of this season or as a flat rate. See donation details below. If you have questions, please contact Jill Culbertson at 510-643-3787.

Your support of Rama as she continues her fight to beat Breast Cancer is truly appreciated. Once a Bear, always a Bear.
