How Ohio State Buckeyes’ Joshua Perry formed incredible bond with young cancer survivor

Joshua Perry Lott IMPACT TrophyJoshua Perry and the younger Joshua (Chambers) met through Perry’s mom, who works in an elementary school with someone who grew up with Chambers’ father. The interaction between big Joshua, the college football star, and little Joshua (wearing his favorite player’s No. 37) is powerful stuff. Perry has made quite an impact on the Chambers family emotionally, but he’s also helped them in their efforts to raise money and awareness for families dealing with pediatric cancer.

“I look and I see a 5-year-old who has gone through cancer treatments and everything that comes with that, and he always has a smile on his face and so much energy. So why am I allowed to be in a bad mood going out to practice?” Perry said.

Head coach Urban Meyer raves about Perry. “He’s what college football is all about. … he has an incredible ability to make someone’s day a little brighter, and he takes that very serious. A great young man.”
