NFL tight runner Konrad Reuland was on his death bed when he declared that God had a plan for his life – but after he passed away from a brain aneurysm at the age of 29 in December, his parents seriously doubted the sentiment.
As destiny would have it, however, Konrad’s organs ended up saving the man who inspired him to become a professional football player twenty years ago.
Fast forward to a year before Konrad’s aneurysm; Rod was playing on a golf course when he suffered a massive heart attack. Doctors informed him that he would eventually need a new heart and kidney if he wanted to live any longer.
Lo and behold, the donor who ended up saving his life was the young man he inspired.
Carew now uses his retirement to advocate for the American Heart Association in honor of Konrad’s memory.
