TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona State associate head women's golf coach Missy Farr-Kaye is battling breast cancer for the second time in 11 years.

The 40-year-old Farr-Kaye says she discovered a lump under her arm earlier this month.

A biopsy confirmed that it was an aggressive form of breast cancer and Farr-Kaye underwent surgery on July 11th and doctors removed 11 lymph nodes for testing.

Farr-Kaye finished her sixth year on the Sun Devil staff under head coach Melissa Luellen and she expects to return to the ASU team this spring.

Farr-Kaye was a member of the ASU women's golf team from 1985 to 1990 and helped the Sun Devils win the 1990 NCAA Championship.

Her older sister was former ASU and LPGA star Heather Farr, who also fought breast cancer before she died in 1993.
