Default Ben sends message to fan with Cancer

http://bigben7.com/

This is part of the letter she wrote:


Hello my name is Julia Pollock.

I battled breast cancer in 2010. In January 2011 I thought I had won the battle, but unfortunately I had not. The cancer is now in my spine and affecting my brain. They say it is terminal. Iím 38 hrs old and refuse to accept that. I still have so much I need to do.

I want Ben to know that his video email meant the world to me not just because I bleed black and gold and watching him every Sunday makes my week but because Iíve ALWAYS known him to be a man with a good heart. When I received the message I was in the hospital and I swear that was the moment I realized I had to fight like I was playing those dumb Ravens in a playoff game. Lol. After 52 days bed ridden in the hospital I am home with my family in Brighton,CO. Iím getting stronger everyday. I guess you could say this is my training camp.


No matter what you think of Ben, you can't deny or argue that was a classy thing to do. Lets make this video go viral. Retweet it if you can. Share it on your facebook...send to your favorite Ravens fan...but lets make this go viral.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Better yet, Ben should go pay a visit to the women. Now that is classy and making dreams come true.

Well she is going to the denver game so maybe ben will treat her on that day. But the message he sent was thoughtful and classy.
