NY Giant Mark Herzlich Explains "What It Takes" to Beat Cancer

TheStreet (June 4, 2014) — One thing cancer does is teach you about life, says Mark Herzlich, New York Giant and author of "What It Takes". An All-American at Boston College, Herzlich overcame Ewing's sarcoma, a rare bonce cancer, to return to BC’s football team and eventually win a spot on the Super Bowl champion NY Giants. Herzlich says along the way he was touched by the outpouring of support, not just from his teammates and family, but from opposing college and NFL players as well. Herzlich says he understands that not everybody will be as lucky as he is and beat cancer, nevertheless, he believes his story serves as inspiration for those struggling against long odds on or off the field.
