"A Little Victor with Spartan Devotion" - A Feel-Good story out of Motts

Submitted by TXWolverine44 on November 6th, 2016 at 10:54 PM

Real good story out of Mott's and another reason why i love sports and that it can transcend the RCMB name calling and cooler-pooping content from OSU fans.

tl;dr - Cancer sucks, Mott's is incredible and Go Blue!

Great story. I respect Ian's "spartan will". However, I can't help but to picture the Dave Chappelle skit where he plays video games with the cancer patient and imagine harbaugh on the sticks.

They sorta do.  Their med school classes are centralized at either their EL campus or Grand Rapids and then students spread out and do their 3rd and 4th years at one of their handful of satelite affilated hospitals.  Grand Rapids, Flint, Lansing, Midland, etc...  They don't have the same centralized hospital arrangement that UofM does (or most other universities for that matter).

Bravo to the crew who took care of him, looking at that MRI, that must've been one heck of a surgery (and the chemo/radiation to follow I'm sure was no joke).

She graduated this year and I think her commencment ceremony was one of the few times she actually went to East Lansing at all during her years in the program. 

She did pretty much everything in metro Detroit/online/from home.  

She did go to U of M for undergrad, and no offense to my brother's wife, but I don't think I will ever voluntarily see a Spartan Doctor, for anything, myself...that program did not seem to be churning out the best and brightest.

Let's be honest. We're just as capable of of "name calling and pooper cooling content" as Staee and OSU fans. We are simply more clever. Great story about a tough little kid. All the best to him.
