Heartwarming and Lifechanging

This is an amazing story about 7 year old Jack Hoffman.

Jack has brain cancer, and has already had 2 major operations to fight it.  He is on a 2 week break from a 60 week chemotherapy programme.  In Nebraska’s spring game, Jack comes on as quarterback wearing number 22, and gets given the ball 69 yards out.

What follows is a heartwarming clip of offence defending him, and the defence trying to get to him, but he makes a storming run down the right side of the pitch all the way for a touchdown, where both teams and both benches join hi to celebrate his touchdown.

It’s great to see how sport can have such a massive impact on people’s lives, and this moment will surely stay with him forever. You can read the article here.
