Nick Bell, who plays defensive end for Mississippi State, is currently in intensive care after undergoing an emergency surgery.
The sophomore, who was a graduate of Jess Lanier High School, was admitted to a hospital in Birmingham, Alabama for the procedure after learning on Sunday that his cancer has spread.
As posted on ESPN, Bell’s coach Dan Mullen paid him a visit at the University of Alabama-Birmingham hospital on November 1st, after his surgery earlier that day. Mullen said he and about 50 other people planned to spend some time with Bell and his family Monday night, and they asked for everybody’s support.
Social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook, are currently asking for MSU supporters, football fans, NCAA Football Betting enthusiasts, and the whole NCAA community to include Bell in their thoughts and prayers.
An organization called Monday Morning Quarterback has already expressed its desire to provide financial assistance for Bell.
According to reports, Bell, a native of Bessemer, Alabama, suffered from terrible headaches in September and underwent surgery at Vanderbilt on October 1st to take out a mass on his brain was removed. Dr. Allen Sills diagnosed the mass as a form of skin cancer. This news definitely triggered a different set of emotions from the recent NCAA football scandals that resulted to players being suspended, right?
We all hope the 6-foot-3, 265-pound football player, who has made seven tackles in four games this season, gets a speedy recovery soon.
