A metro mother, whose fight against cancer made national headlines after a half-court shot at a Thunder game, has died.

We first met Heath and Jenni Kuhfalh last year after Heath won $20,000 after making the shot. He then pledged all the money towards his wife's battle against a rare form of cancer in her appendix.

Students and staff at Christain Hertigage Academy in Del City, where Heath is a coach and teacher, also raised money to help in Jenni's fight.

News 9 has been told Jenni passed away on Sunday. She leaves behind her husband and seven kids.
