Thank you God 4 years cancer free today… Having cancer doesn’t define you, your mindset does. Keep fighting keep positive.. Saying a prayer for those who are still fighting during these times.. “ it started with hope” … ????????

Today, Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner celebrates 4 years of being cancer free after a 2015 battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma. In December of 2015, Conner announced that he had the disease, which was discovered during his rehab from a torn MCL he suffered while playing for the University of Pittsburgh. He had a full course of chemotherapy and in May of 2016, he announced he was cancer free.
Steelers fans everywhere are glad to have Conner in the black and gold and we are looking forward to an injury free season for number 30 so he can grind it out on the field. Join all of us here at Steeler Nation in wishing Conner the best by telling us what you love most about him in the comments below!
