Post is the daughter of Saints head boys basketball coach Lucas Post and his wife, Lyndsey. Mia was diagnosed with a Wilm’s tumor, affecting her kidney in October. Since then, she’s had surgery to remove the kidney and tumor and she’s now undergoing additional treatments. As a health precaution, Mia did not attend Monday’s pre- and post-game fundraiser for the Post family.

Boys basketball: Hundreds turn out to make 'Miracle for Mia' in Kerkhoven


KERKHOVEN — Basketball teams typically want nothing more than a win on game night, but the KMS boys team’s encounter with Hancock on Monday was just a small part of something much bigger.

Before, during and after Hancock’s 72-33 victory over the Saints, friends, well-wishers and fans packed the school cafeteria and gym to take part in the “Miracle for Mia” fundraiser for Mia Post, the 4-year-old daughter of KMS head coach Lucas Post and his wife, Lyndsey.
