Anonymous NFL Player Donates Bone Marrow To Stranger
February 1, 2018
A Kansas City man received life-changing bone marrow from an anonymous NFL player, and now he's heading to the Super Bowl to meet him for the first time.
After years of aches and pains, chemo treatments and visits to the doctor, Roy Coe remembers the day a donor came forward for a bone marrow transplant.
For two years after the transplant, Coe often wondered who the donor was. On Tuesday, the mystery was finally solved.
Staff at the University of Kansas Cancer Center revealed to Coe that the donor is an NFL player. While the player's identity still remains a secret, Coe will have a chance to meet the donor this week during a special trip to Minneapolis for the Super Bowl.
"He probably saved my life," Coe told the local news. "I think I owe him a big ol' 'thank you' for that at the very least."
Coe is scheduled to meet the NFL player on Wednesday to receive his tickets to the big game.
"That is something I did not expect," he said. "I never expected in my life to ever go to the Super Bowl."
