From the moment the Indianapolis Colts football team announced that head coach Chuck Pagano had been diagnosed with leukemia back in October, the team and city rallied in support. Even the coach’s players shaved their heads in solidarity as he underwent chemotherapy, according to the Huffington Post.
With Pagano back with the team, his cancer in remission and his team on the eve of a playoff game, the 52-year-old coach shared his gratitude in an open letter to “The people of Indiana” published in The Indianpolis Star.
“I knew Indy had great fans, but I might have underestimated just how great. Being new to the community I never expected the outpouring of support I received from Colts fans throughout the state and country. The love and support you showed my family and me gave me a tremendous amount of comfort and peace.”
