Even though his favorite team, the San Francisco 49ers, lost yesterday, Brian Rozelle, who has terminal cancer, will never forget the cheers echoing from his football idols who sent him an email after his family decided to trek up to Seattle for the playoff game.
“I decided I wanted to come up to Seattle and (my parents) said – ‘Fine, let’s make it a family adventure.’”
So, the Rozelle family piled into a van on Thursday morning, but before they left the 28-year-old got a surprise email. The 49ers had heard about Rozelle’s story and wrote to share some touching and supportive thoughts.
“The game you’re in is a lot bigger than ours, so don’t quit fighting and know you are in our thoughts and prayers,” the email read in part.
