After undergoing several tests in Atlanta, Kansas City Chiefs safety, Eric Berry has officially been diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma.
“My family and I are very grateful for the amount of support we have received over the last couple of weeks,” Berry said in a statement. “I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate all the words of encouragement, the blessings and well wishes. I want to thank the Emory University School of Medicine, along with Dr. Flowers and his team, for all of their hard work and effort in diagnosing and creating a plan for me to battle this thing. 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!”
Berry was diagnosed with the disease after doctors discovered a mass in his chest. “This is a diagnosis that is very treatable and potentially curable with standard chemotherapy approaches,” MD Christopher R. Flowers, director of the Emory Lymphoma Program at Emory’s Winship Cancer Institute said. “The goal of Mr. Berry’s treatment is to cure his lymphoma and we are beginning that treatment now.”
The team will be selling “Be Bold Be Brave Be Berry” shirts inside Arrowhead Stadium in honor of Berry, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
