Tiki Barber on Tackling Cancer

Oct 26, 2018, 05:16 PM

Known as one of the New York Giants rushing leaders in franchise history, Tiki Barber knows the trials and tribulations of battle both on and off the football field.

In late 1996, Tiki’s mother Geraldine was diagnosed with bilateral invasive ductal carcinoma while he and his brother, Ronde, were both highly successful members of the University of Virginia football team. His mother is now a 22-year survivor, and since, Tiki has become deeply involved in the cancer community.

On Nov. 8, Tiki will deliver the keynote address at the 36th Annual Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium, held in New York City, to share his mother’s journey with breast cancer and the impact it had on his life.
