Putting Life Into Perspective After a Cancer Diagnosis

Former NFL coach discusses how cancer motivated him to appreciate life.

Chuck Pagano, a former NFL coach, always had a good mindset about life.

However, things were really put into perspective in 2012 when he was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Since then, Pagano appreciates the people in his life even more, and even on seemingly bad days, he realizes that he is’ “one of the lucky ones.” Now, he does not take any days for granted, and gives his all to each day he has.
