Tackling Cancer With Purpose

Season 1, Episode 47,  Dec 08, 2018, 03:58 PM

In 2012, former NFL head coach Chuck Pagano started to feel fatigued – a feeling most would associate with the long two-a-days of any given football preseason – but it was when unexplained bruises started to appear that he visited with the team’s medical staff and was eventually diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia.

Since, he looks back on his journey and feels there was a reason he faced a cancer diagnosis – something he says is way bigger than football.

This week, we spoke with Chuck about his cancer journey, and why speaking with patients, advocates and health care professionals at CURE Magazine’s first-ever CLL Heroes event was so important to him.
