The story of Eric Berry is amazing. It was just last year he was diagnosed with cancer, but in 2015… he is all clear.
Eric Berry played his first game back last Saturday from being cleared cancer free and as expected, he shares how he broke down on the plane.
“I broke down on the plane on the way out here,” Berry admitted after the game, according to the Chiefs’ web site. “It is just a blessing to be out here.”
“I’ve been running into a lot of people that don’t even know about football telling me that their cousin has been diagnosed with cancer or their mom or aunt,” he said. “They just tell me that they have hope because they see me out on the field, and that means a lot to me.”
Its good to see Eric Berry back and doing what he loves. Fighting cancer not only affects you, but also your family and in Berry’s case, his fans. He know becomes a glimmer of hope for those fighting horrible diseases that you can win. Don’t give up.
