Less than a month ago, Chiefs safety Eric Berry was focused on little more than his next NFL game. Today, he's dealing with the most serious situation that he's ever been forced to deal with.
A short time ago, the Chiefs revealed that Berry—a 3-time Pro Bowl player—has officially been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma at Emory University's Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta. The disease is treatable and "potentially curable," according to Emory Lymphoma Program director Dr. Christopher R. Flowers, but Berry will need to start treating it immediately.
"The goal of Mr. Berry's treatment is to cure his lymphoma," Dr. Flowers said in a statement released by the Chiefs, "and we are beginning that treatment now."
The statement also included some words from Berry himself.
"My family and I are very grateful for the amount of support we have received over the last couple of weeks," he said. "I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the words of encouragement, the blessings, and well wishes…I will embrace this process and attack it the same way I do everything else in life. God has more than prepared me for it. For everyone sharing similar struggles, I'm praying for you and keep fighting!"
Prayers up for Berry. If you want to support his fight, you can buy a "BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE BERRY" T-shirt from the Chiefs team store. All proceeds will go towards the Eric Berry Foundation.
