Emotions will fill Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, as the Bucs open their home Schedule against the Rams. A bright spot, and one where many fans may have to wipe tears from their eyes is when Josh Fisher, an eight-year-old cancer survivor, will lead the team out of the tunnel and onto the field.
Fisher was diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and has helped with the Bucs Cut for a Cure program that raises money for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The survivor has personally shaved player’s heads to help raise money for this charity. Fisher faced a staggering 1,200 doses of chemotherapy over the last 3 and a half years and was declared cancer free two years ago.
The resilience and toughness Fisher has shown is something all NFL fans should be proud of. The Odessa, Florida native will represent the team on Sunday and all people that fight cancer, take a minute to look at this amazing eight-year-old and cheer him on and all the fight and courage that he represents.
