Cancer Patient Experiences Football as Healing
Below is an except from a blogpost written by Karon Hanson on the Healing As A Sacred Path blog.
"[He] received more rounds of chemo earlier this Fall, and when it was found the cancer was still progressing, he enrolled in a clinical trial at the Mayo Clinic, testing a promising immunotherapy drug, hoping that it will boost his own immune system to knock down the cancer. [He] hasn't felt great many days, but he still has gone to work, he still has gone to almost every practice and all the games. He could forget about the illness, the knot in the pit of his stomach, the dread of this disease, and just enjoy the moment and enjoy sharing the experience with his son and his family and friends, all of whom have gone to every game we possibly could."
