Photo: Kansas Basketball Includes Holly Rowe In Team Huddle As She Returns To Work From Cancer Battle

Less than a month after announcing that she would take time off to be treated for a tumor in her chest, ESPN's Holly Rowe is back at work for tonight's game between Kansas and Texas. The fact that it is a Kansas game is pretty perfect, as Bill Self's club recorded a "get well soon" message on Facebook after her announcement.

After this afternoon's practice, the Jayhawks included Rowe in their team huddle. 

Rowe issued an update on her status earlier today on Twitter.

Her full message:

I am very excited to be back working Kansas at Texas for Big Monday tonight. I had a great Doctor's visit last week, he told me, "mood and attitude is crucial to your success treating cancer. If you are smiling and joyful, you are fighting cancer." I told him what brings me joy is working so we have mapped out a conservative schedule for me in March. Big 12 Tourney and Womens Regional Final and Final Four. I am so grateful for my supportive bosses and colleagues at ESPN. Also, The great staff at the Huntsman Cancer Institute who are patiently working around my schedule. In April, I will devote that month to treatment and hope to back and stronger than ever for NCAA Softball in May and June. I am so thankful and grateful for the prayers, love and support I have received. It is amazing to see the amount of positive, loving, kind people in my world. I am SO lucky. Thank you! And now, just getting back to work because it's March Madness!!!!!

Welcome back, Holly.
