Kansas City, MO (WKBW) – Football is more than just on the field.
This was the case with 16-year-old Jayden Lewis, who is battling rare bone cancer.
“I’m a hardcore Wyoming fan, so when Josh Allen came to math, I became a math fan,” he said.
Louis underwent major lung surgery last week but could not miss the Buffalo Bills, and idol Josh Allan will play against Kansas City bosses in the AFC Champions League.
Their families packed their bags and traveled 16 hours to Missouri to Kansas City.
Jayden, who is not from Buffalo and did not go to Buffalo, says it is difficult to find Bill’s supporters near his home in Billing, Montana.
“They would love to see another accountant wearing a billboard,” he said of the rare fans who watched the game in their hometown.
This group means a lot to this young man, who has more experience of life’s trials and tribulations in two years than most people do in their entire lives.
For seven months he underwent chemotherapy, 50 radiation treatments, and two lung surgeries.
“I am so proud of him and the person he was with,” recalls his father, Matt Lewis, who held back tears in an interview outside Arrode Stadium. He should realize that he is not just talking about sports. ”
This father does everything for his son.
“When you hear the word cancer, you don’t think about time,” he said.
Jayden has played soccer all his life, but Matt says he can’t play again because of cancer.
“He may lose his left leg in order to get the cancer out of his pelvis,” says Matt. We brought him here just to get some tickets for him and try to please him and keep his mind clear when we fight. We want to appreciate life. ”
So this family is taking this once in a lifetime. They would love to meet other members of the Bills mafia, and would enjoy the payment.
“Life blows fast ahead of you,” says Matt, “and it’s wonderful to appreciate your own life.”
Like the accounts in the field, Jayden continues to struggle with courage, strength, and grace.
“I never thought he would come here,” he says. “I’m fighting, I’m still fighting and it’s amazing,” he said.
