The Gazette shared the story of Iowa State defensive lineman Mitchell Meyers who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in February and decided to stay in Iowa for his treatments instead of back to Texas where his family is so that he could be with his teammates, who he continues to work out with even as he undergoes his chemo treatments.
In the article, his coach explains how Meyers is maintaining a positive outlook and relying on the support from his team:
" 'He remains upbeat and positive in his daily approach, which should surprise nobody who has ever come in contact with Mitchell,' Iowa State football coach Paul Rhoads said in a statement. 'He recognizes that he has a long road ahead. A journey that he is not traveling alone.' Working out with teammates has kept Meyers in respectable shape physically, but one of his biggest appreciations since his diagnosis has been the letters he’s received."
