Damar Hamlin experienced a rare form of cardiac arrest last season with the Buffalo Bills in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. His heart stopped on the field after a hit direct to his chest. He has been cleared to play football again this year and has been practicing during voluntary workouts already this year.
He reached out to the James family to offer his support during this difficult time.
Since his accident on the field, he has been on a mission to get defibrillators on every court and field for every sport for athletes at just about every level.
