I've been a member of the various forums for many years now, but I don't post much at all anymore. When Coach Pagano was diagnosed with Leukemia, I was saddened like many fans and cheered him on for a complete recovery. Little did I know at the time that I'd be receiving my own diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in a few short months.

I was admitted to the hospital on December 6th and transferred to the IU Simon Cancer Center on December 7th. Coach Pagano's battle turned from something I followed in the news to something I was living. His words about living in your vision and not in your circumstances is something I grabbed on to right away. Like him, I have two daughters that I will walk down the aisle. I will also see my son grow up, and will take him to Colts games. My vision is one of remission, of growing old with my wife, and my circumstances of a leukemeia diagnosis is not what defines me.

I am a season ticket holder, and have friends with season tickets as well. Two of my friends decided to auction off their tickets for the Houston game to help out my family Even though they didn't have to, the Colts ticket office offered to upgrade the tickets so that more money could be raised. I know football is a business, but I also know the Colts are active in the community and care about fans.

Thank you to the Colts Organization and Mr. Irsay for running a compassionate franchise. Thank you for hiring a coach that is an inspiration in the face of adversity. Thank you to the ticket office for graciously giving upgraded seats, so that more money could be raised. I couldn't be prouder to be a Colts fan and I look forward to a vision of long term remission for both Coach and I that includes multiple Lombardis ;)

I commend you for your bravery. You don't have to be famous to be an inspiration to the masses. Your positive attitude and resolve in the face of such adversity is beyond admirable. I wish you and your family the very best throughout these trying times. I will be keeping you in my prayers. Here's to wishing you a complete and speedy recovery!

Can't say it much better than that. Good luck Rob!

Best of Luck to you. I will give you the same sentiment I sent to Coach Pagano.

HOPE = Have Only Positive Expectations.

You can beat this, just follow the doctors orders and keep the great attitude!

I know a guy who's recently been diagnosed with cancer but he's still working because he can't get workmanship comp for some reason. IMO his focus should be on beating this thing 100%. It's total crap he can't receive the assistance he deserves.

Thank you everyone for the kinds words!  It looks like I left out a big thank you in my original post, which is a thank you to the Colts fans.  I was discharged on Saturday and got to watch the Colts kick some Texan butt from my own couch.  What a game!  I still have once a month chemo for 7 months, but continue to be confident that I will be cured.

 

While at IU Simon Cancer Center, I had the honor of being interviewed as part of Coach Pagano's return to the sideline.  The special on coach should air on Sunday.  I'm not sure if it will air as part of pre-game or separately on NFL network, but if you see a nearly bald guy with an Andrew Luck jersey on, that's me ;).

    • And how long did Favre force throws, throw interceptions, etc? we're not comparing PLAYERS, we're comparing situations they were thrown in and how it affected their play long-term.
    • I didn't say the Colts were the only team to bring players off the street.  However, with the Colts it's more due to desperation than bringing in players in to see if they have anything left in the tank.  Others may disagree with me but I still think winning early made this regime a bit complacent making them think that they were only a player or two away from winning it all.  We still don't know if this o line will be good once the bullets start flying and we only have a group of rookies to back up the starting o line.  I'm just saying that there were a lot of question marks before all of these injuries but now we have exclamation points instead of question marks. 
    • Come on people... I didnt say Luck was George or even cpmpared them. to think that the hurries, hits, bad running game hasn't affected Luck is nonsense.  And to think it couldn't affect him going forward is short-sided.  I didn't say luck wouldn't be good, but could hear "footsteps" in the pocket, hurry throws , force throws, or run too soon (all of which he's done). have u seen some of the topics around here?  I thought i raised a legitimate question that he could have a "memory" of being hurried, like MANY QB's have thru history, including Peyton. but NOWHERE was i comparing him to george (as a player), merely that they have experienced very similar issues regarding poor OL play, inadaquate running game, and being behind in the score. sheesh.  
    • Isn't this interesting......   You,  who don't like it when people take on your 2nd amendment rights,  are now blasting someone over his 1st amendment rights.          Hmmmmm?   Remember,  free speech isn't free or protected unless unpopular speech is protected.    
    • Thats what i was thinking.  He'd help those he talked about more by putting his money where his mouth is. until then, he's just another stupid kid who doesn't realize what an a** he's being.  He's average at best anyhow, and he might have a few screws loose. start a scholarship, open a rec center, sponsor a little league team. talk is cheap. He's a punk kid, who's unhappy cuz his production isn't living up to his hype: hey Kap, maybe get ur head in the playbook?  Or better yet, you MIGHT have a chance starting in the CFL. Since this country is so bad, maybe thats your best option.  Don't let the "door" hit you in your  skinny, over-rated, and over-paid a**.  No one will miss you, ESPECIALLY your team.  You'd be doing them a favor actually.
