I love heroes, men and women who have strong spirits and radiant-brilliant minds, and Freddie Joe Steinmark is one of them. Read more about him below the images.
Freddie Steinmark, an American college football player back in the 60’s. He played at the position of safety for the University of Texas Longhorns. He has inspired millions of people around the globe, patients with cancer or other terminal or incapacitated diseases. He is an inspiration to many, even to people who enjoy good health but want to be stronger everyday.
Yes, I admire him greatly. Last night I was watching the movie about his life: “My All American”. Needless to say I was crying at the end. I was inspired by Freddie’s heart, his powerful mind, his tremendous and furious courage, fearless to pain, always with a smile and kind attitude for everyone around him: a true hero.
He was born January 27, 1949, in Denver Colorado and died at the age of 22 in June 6, 1971, at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, United States. Diagnosis: Congenital Osteosarcoma (bone cancer).
The amputation of his left leg, from the left hip, and the knowledge that his survival rate after the surgery was about a year, didn’t stop him from living!
