A White Jersey in a Sea of Red: A Brother's Bond

Jason Graham, brother of Broncos tight end, Daniel Graham, is lucky to be alive. Five years ago, Jason learned that he suffered from kidney disease and would require a transplant in order to live.

Daniel found it difficult to concentrate on his football career until the transplant took place in December of 2006. Daniel had volunteered his kidney for the transplant knowing full well that it could have ended his football career, but their mother, Marilyn, was a better match. Yesterday, the two brothers celebrated a special moment in Kansas City as Daniel caught a pass from Jay Cutler and crossed the goaline. Daniel ran towards the Arrowhead crowd and looked for the loan white Broncos jersey in his brother’s section. Daniel tossed the ball to Jason and they shared a moment laughing at eachother. After Jason caught the ball, he explained his connection with the Broncos player to neighboring Chiefs fans. After a disappointing game for their beloved Chiefs, fans were slapping hands with that white jersey seven rows behind the end zone because they knew the significance of a brothers’ bond.
