MISHAWAKA, Ind. - Notre Dame Head Football Coach Brian Kelly and his wife, Paqui, have immersed themselves into the Michiana community from day one, and they continue to do so in a big way.

On Thursday, a formal naming and blessing for the new Paqui and Brian Kelly Comprehensive Breast Center was held at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center.

A two-time breast cancer survivor, Paqui created the Kelly Cares Foundation, which donated a generous gift to improve the quality of breast care for women in our community.

The Paqui and Brian Kelly Comprehensive Breast Center will allow women access to state-of-the-art screening, support, and access to clinical trials and research.

For the Kellys, life is clearly more than football -- it is about giving back to a community they call home.

The Paqui and Brian Kelly Comprehensive Breast Center will be located at the medical office building at St. Joe's Mishawaka campus.
