    Not sure where to put this so I am 'spamming' FH and put it here, the Anything thread and the Lounge section. I want it to be seen by as many people as possible because no matter how we agonize about our favorite teams, fall apart when they lose and call it a disaster, no matter where we stand politically and the constant forth and back and no matter if you are black or white, religious or not some people just have drawn a worse hand of cards in the game of life.
    I think nothing can be more devastating than being diagnosed as a 5-year old with brain cancer and having two tough surgeries at the age of 7.


    The story itself is already three years old but it is always new and that little 'Rudy moment' will be ingrained in his life forever.
    Kudos for the Nebraska Cornhuskers to give that little fellow a moment in time - his time. So, next time before you declare a disaster think back to little Jack and his tough battle for life.

    Update: As of today his brain cancer has returned and he still undergoes treatment.
