Washington coach Ron Rivera finishes cancer treatments: How might God redeem your suffering?

Ron Rivera embarked upon his first season as head coach of the Washington Football Team, previously known as the Redskins, by announcing to his players in August that he had squamous cell carcinoma and would have to immediately begin both chemotherapy and proton therapy. That journey turned an important corner on Monday as he completed the last of his treatments.

The prognosis was good from the start, and his doctors have said that all the signs are pointing in the right direction, but that’s never a guarantee, and he’s not out of the woods yet. Through it all, though, he’s been on the sideline for every game and missed only a handful of practices.

Rivera has remarked that the side effects of the treatments surprised him a bit, with the fatigue perhaps the most difficult to deal with, but he’s endured it well and, in so doing, has galvanized the team.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
