MLB.com Profiles My Last Year
I feel a little weird linking to a story about myself, but since so many of you were so supportive over the last nine months or so, I think you may enjoy this story about how I got diagnosed with leukemia mixed in with a bit of the backstory behind my life. Doug Miller spent a lot of time talking with my parents, my brother, my wife, and some friends of mine to get their perspective on my situation and to share stories and pictures that I never planned on making public.
But, I’m hopeful that the story will help others. Amy and I decided to publicly live through our fight, not really knowing where it would take us, because we wanted to try and be an example of how you can have hope in situations that don’t offer a lot of it. If you get anything from this story, I’d like it to be that – regardless of what kind of circumstance you find yourself in, there’s always a reason for hope.
