Former NFL Player Chris Draft Lost His Wife Keasha To Cancer!

This is such an amazing love story that shows love conquers all. And sadly, it came to an end this week. The former NFLer Chris Draft  lost his wife of 1 month to cancer. More details below……..
The 35-year-old Chris Draft married the love of his life, Keasha in a touching ceremony November 27th in Atlanta.  The bride was battling cancer and used a wheelchair to meet the groom down the aisle.  But amazingly walked the last few steps, as seen in their wedding video down below.
The fairytale came to an end Tuesday as Keasha (Rutledge) Draft lost her battle with cancer, a longtime friend of Chris’ has confirmed to news reporters.
Chris’ friends are also asking everyone to send prayers to the families as they navigate this difficult time.  The couple’s wedding “trailer” is below:
Anaheim native Chris has played for 7 teams during his NFL career which began with the Chicago Bears in 1998. He last played for the Washington Redskins in 2010. And seemed to have dedicated much of his life to giving back to kids, families, service projects, and his own Chris Draft Family Foundation, which empowers families to live healthy

    Im so sorry. Death is the only thing we know for certain in this world yet everytime it comes its like someone ripped your heart out. I lost my mom to the same disease almost 6 months ago & it feels like yesterday. The only thing that keeps me going is God. Never underestimate his power. Call on him fod clarity, for a friend, for you rstrength. Its gonna take time but know that this beautiful strong woman is right beside you. She's gone temporarily. Everything on this earth is borrowed . You will meet her in eteternity. I wish both families the best at this trying time . Just keep walking with Jesus. He stays close to the broken hearted.
