Ashtyn Brown, a freshman member of the Ball State women's golf team, has been named the recipient of the 2012 Brady Comeback Scholarship Award.

The award is given by the Methodist Sports Medicine Research and Education Foundation, and goes to one collegiate female student-athlete each year.  The awards dinner will take place Thurs., April 12, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.  The keynote speaker for the event is National Football League legend Bob Griese, who will be honored along with former Purdue head football coach Joe Tiller, as Lifetime Achievement Recipients.

Brown is a two-time cancer survivor who served as a Children's Miracle Network Ambassador at a PGA event in the fall of 2011.  In addition, Brown was featured on the Golf Channel Radio Network and on a Thanksgiving Day Golf Channel Television special.

Brown was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia as a six-year-old in July of 1999.  Brown suffered a relapse of the disease in 2002, and at the age of 11, weighed 38 lbs., and was given a five percent chance to live.

As a freshman golfer for the Cardinals, she has competed in two events.
