Iowa State players surprise teammate after final chemo

A few days ago the Wisconsin marching band surprised a fan as they played her out of her final chemotherapy treatment. On Friday, one Iowa State player got a surprise he will never forget as he left his final treamtent.

College Spun shared the video of Cyclone defensive end Mitchell Meyers leaving his final chemotherapy treatment and being surprised by his teammates. It started like any other final treatment at Mary Greeley Medical Center.

Meyers was escorted out by the nurses and was ringing a bell, as is tradition. He got a big surprise when he reached the lobby.

Cyclones TV did a nice feature story on Meyers and it was as emotional as you could imagine.

Meyers played the entire 2014 season before learning of his cancer. He recorded thirty tackles for the Cylcones. He also won the 2014 Bill Dailey Unsung Hero Award upon his diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

We at Campus Sports wish Meyers the best of luck in his recovery and we hope to seem him back on the field in the future.
