It has been said that “God works in mysterious ways.” Former Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Moreau agrees and recently referred to his early detection of cancer as part of a “miraculous process.”
The 25-year-old professional athlete said the diagnosis came from a routine medical examination by NFL medical staff.
Moreau announced he would temporarily step away from pro football while he addressed medical issues. During his announcement, he said:
“Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this free agency period has been life-changing for me. During a routine physical conducted by the Saints’ medical team down in New Orleans, I’ve come to learn that I have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and will be stepping away from football at this time to fight a new opponent: Cancer.:
Moreau continued: I’m grateful for the support and thankful for people who have stood firm with me. There hasn’t been a single step I’ve taken without hundreds of people lighting the path before me, and I will continue to seek their guidance.
His last tweet noted his confidence that he would overcome medical challenges and “get back to doing what I love! AMDG!”
The Western Journal reported that AMDG is an abbreviation for ad majorem Dei gloriam, a Latin phrase meaning “for the greater glory of God.”
The Raiders drafted Moreau in 2019 — he became a free agent this year.
