Houston Texans receiver John Metchie III appears to be in high spirits as he battles leukemia.
While battling the horrific illness, Metchie stopped by Houston’s Tuesday practice, and he was all smiles. You can check out the truly awesome moment below.
Cancer is a horrific disease, and pretty much every single person reading this knows someone who has battled it. It’s absolutely terrible.
That’s why it’s such a sad and tough situation that Metchie, who is only 22, was diagnosed with leukemia.
The good news is it sounds like the former receiver for Nick Saban is going to kick the disease and will win the fight.
As you can see in the video, he’s in very high spirits. It must be tough to smile when going to war with a potentially fatal disease, but Metchie is doing his best to not get down.
It was great to see Metchie swing by practice to let his teammates see him. Hopefully, he’s back on the football field as soon as possible. Nobody wants to see anyone struggle with cancer, especially a young man.
