Kevin Reilly -A Story of Inspiration

An Inspirational story. Playing for his hometown team, The Philadelphia Eagles, and feeling on top of the world as the captain of the special teams, Kevin Reilly ran out of the tunnel on game day to the Steelers AstroTurf. During that game, in a brutal collision with a fellow opponent, his shoulder was injured. The events after the injury were unexpected and devastating. Scar tissue formed, which progressed to Desmoid scar tissue, and a tumor was strangling his blood vessels and organs. The doctors operated to save his life; a radical Forequarter Amputation left Kevin with no left arm, no shoulder and five of his ribs.
