How Emily Grund is overcoming cancer and working her way back to the pool


Emily Grund sat in an emergency room at UNC Hospitals, waiting for a doctor to come in and perform a bone marrow biopsy. She was alone, and she was crying. On Sept. 9, 2021, her life had spiraled out of her control. Some of her teammates on the UNC swimming and diving teams had noticed a bruise. Soon, bruises formed all over her body. (Daily Tar Heel)
