Daily Sports Smile Rewind: Bills fan celebrates end of cancer treatment in unique way
Buffalo Bills fan Victor Neilson celebrated the end of chemotherapy in a unique way. After months of treatment, Neilson rang the bell to signify his accomplishment in January. However, he added a little twist true to his Bills fandom.
Neilson set up a table with the word “cancer” in white paint. He climbed a step ladder and dove through the table like many in Bills Mafia. Afterward, he expressed gratitude to the medical staff with high-fives.
Sportskind shared the video on social media. Neilson ended his celebration with a fist pump that culminated a long journey.
According to local news WIVB 4, Neilson underwent chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He began treatments in August 2020.
Since that heartwarming moment, Neilson started a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. He created a bobblehead of him holding the broken table in celebration. The proceeds will go towards helping raise money for the society.
The Bills host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m. ET from Highmark Stadium and CBS will televise the game.
