Heartfelt Words from Derek Carr To Former Teammate After Severe Medical Diagnosis

Recently, Foster Moreau, a free-agent tight end, disclosed that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and will be taking a break from football.

In a Twitter post, the 25-year-old revealed that his cancer diagnosis came after a checkup with the New Orleans Saints.

“During a routine physical with the Saints’ medical team in New Orleans, it was discovered that I have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I have decided to step away from football temporarily to battle this new challenge – Cancer. I appreciate all the support and am grateful for those who have been by my side. I am humbled by the numerous individuals who have guided me along this journey,” Moreau shared.

He added, “With that being said, I will fight this battle and return to pursue my passion! AMDG!”

Derek Carr, Moreau’s former colleague and quarterback, expressed his support for the veteran tight end on Twitter.

“We love you and are here to support you. Praying for you, brother!” Carr tweeted.
