There is great news out of Texas for young man Andrew Jones, who was diagnosed with leukemia seven months ago. He is officially done with his cancer treatments and has cancer BEAT.
Jones posted a video ringing the bell to celebrate being done.
The Texas Basketball G is excited to get back on the floor!
“It’s kind of depressing because I was almost at the peak of my game,” Jones said in a Players’ Tribune video. “I was playing at a high level to make myself a potential draft pick … I started to feel run down, started to feel heavy. It kind of feels like a dehydrating type of feeling, and it’s like you don’t wanna move, you just wanna lay there.”
He is already getting back to playing and getting ready for the season. He wants to inspire us all to get up and always fight.
“I’m starting to embrace being a cancer survivor,” Jones said. “If I can inspire you just to get up in the morning and attempt to make your life better, then I’ve done my job, I feel good. I’ve faced death twice, and I’m here by the grace of God.”
