The Steelers open the 2019 season on Sunday, September 8 against the New England Patriots.. The Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner was diagnosed with cancer at 20 and recently revealed how the diagnosis came just in time.
While appearing on Mike Stud’s podcast, “Ya Neva Knows: Do You Know What I Mean?” Conner described her moment of learning this devastating news, in which a physician told her that she only had to live “about a week”.
“As a runner, I was like, ‘This is the worst thing in the world,'” Conner told The Star. “[MCL] running from injury? That’s not cool.”
“I’m rehabbing for him, trying to get back before the season is over,” Conner said. “And then I’m rehabbing and [getting stuff] in the night, sweating. Brother, I’m getting like 15 minutes at night, going to sleep. Who doesn’t love sleep? That’s the worst [thing] in the world … and so I got some tests. And got a tumor around my heart … I grew the tumor around, and it was pressing “”.
“The physician told me I had a week left,” Conner said. “He said, ‘You’ve got about a week. If you don’t [treat], your rate is going up about a week.’
