A Message from Kevin Everett


By Eileen Buckley

Orchard Park, NY – The Buffalo Bills posted this message from Kevin Everett on their Website, www.buffalobills.com. It reads as follows:

I am deeply humbled by all of your support, your thoughts, and your prayers during this trying period in my life. As you may already be aware, I have shown significant progress in my recovery. But, I am also fully aware that the recovery from the type of injury I have sustained is filled with peaks and valleys. While the road to recovery is long and hard, I am determined to fight through it each and every day.

This week, with the assistance of a walker, I was able to take steps, and I have been able to move in my wheelchair, both of which are great triumphs for me. I maintain a positive attitude and feel fortunate every day that I am alive and well. I value and appreciate the unfailing support of my family, my friends, my doctors, and my fans.

While I am happy to share these moments of success in my recovery with you, I also ask that you understand this is a very challenging and personal time for me. I respectfully request that any future updates regarding my medical condition be obtained exclusively from the media relations team at Memorial Hermann|TIRR. I hope that I can soon report another milestone in my recovery. Until then.

Respectfully, Kevin Everett.
