Kansas City Chiefs were dealt a huge blow when they lost safety Eric Berry for the season last year after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, but more importantly, Berry himself was plunged into the biggest battle of his life.
Berry subsequently began treatments to tackle the cancer, and the reports of the Chiefs star’s recovery have been heartwarming and upbeat in the last few months.
Furthermore, on Wednesday, an update from the Berry camp was even more heartwarming, with his brother Evan, a sophomore defensive back for the Tennessee Volunteers, explaining that Berry is doing “very well” as he attempts to make a full recovery and resume playing in the NFL.
On the road to recovery
"He's doing really well," Evan Berry told reporters Tuesday, via the Kansas City Star,” NFL.com reported.
"I think he has three more treatments left. To be honest, I don't really see it affecting him. He's a very strong person, and he's continued to keep strong."
Despite the positive vibes coming from the Berry camp since the star safety was diagnosed last year, Evan Berry admits it was a “scary” moment when his brother was plunged into the cancer battle. "It was scary," Evan Berry added. "But he wasn't worried, so I wasn't worried."
And the reason why Evan’s despair did not last for long is because of comments, such as the ones from Berry’s doctor, Dr. Christopher Flowers, who said this when the Chiefs star was diagnosed.
"This is a diagnosis that is very treatable and potentially curable with standard chemotherapy approaches. The goal of Mr. Berry's treatment is to cure his lymphoma and we are beginning that treatment now."
It is safe to say that we all wish the three-time Pro Bowler a full and speedy recovery.
