Gentry played Greenland in a high school softball game dubbed "No One Fights Alone" to bring more awareness to breast cancer. The players, coaches and managers of each team dedicated the game in honor of, or in memory of, someone who has battled breast cancer. Both teams wore special jerseys during the game. Ferguson is a breast cancer survivor and threw out a ceremonial first pitch to her daughter before the start of the game.
