Hi guys-

Jerry Kill is the head coach of the University of Minnesota football team. He is an unbelievable guy--very genuine and caring. And....he's an RCC survivor. Here's a video you might find interesting and inspiring. He's be an survivor for 6+ years. Anyway, I am a HUGE Wisconsin Badger fan and have always disliked the Gophers. But, since they hired Jerry last year I have been rooting for him (except when they play the Badgers). This was months before I ever gave a second thought to RCC. Anyway, Jerry found out about my surgery from someone at General Mills (where I work). He immediately posted on my Caringbridge site. Just a small example of how a simple act of kindness can have a big impact.

Anyway, I hope you like the video below:

Scott,

I just watched it, I knew he had some health issues mostly because of his on field collapse this season, but I had no idea he was one of us, very cool.

Thanks,

Gary

Flatlander, I hope it's mostly just your eyes weeping now. It seems you're continuing to be a special guy in more than one way! Hang in there and keep making progress.

Good video. It's worthy of note that complete strangers can have so much empathy while some friends and relatives try to avoid contact because of uneasy feelings about cancer.

That elephant always seems to be in the room when with people that know you and its odd because I remember being in that room and feeling the same way not that long ago. Now I'm comfortable talking to others about their journey, one of the few good things I can say about cancer.

I was watching a Gophers football game on television this past fall when their Coach Kill collapsed on the side lines. Some TV commentator had mentioned that he (Coach Kill) was a kidney cancer survivor. I became a Minnesota fan all of a sudden...Well anyway go HUSKERS.....
