The longtime Denver Broncos Hall of Famer Floyd Little combats his biggest life battle.

During his nine-year NFL career, Floyd Little was one of the most dynamic running backs of his time. While the team was not at its best during his time, he was one of the stars of the early Broncos years, which granted him the nickname "The Franchise." Now the longtime Broncos Ring of Famer and Hall of Famer is currently in the toughest battle of his life.

Little has been diagnosed with cancer. Those who have battled or know someone who has battled some form of cancer know that it can be taxing for all those involved. Now Little battles an opponent stronger than any that he has seen on the football field.

According to his friend Patrick Killorin, the cancer in which Little has is aggressive, but treatable. There are no details into what kind of cancer it is, but rest assured that no matter what it will be a battle.

During his time with the Denver Broncos, Little recorded 6,323 yards rushing and 43 touchdowns. He was a five-time Pro Bowl player as a member of the Broncos.

There is a way to help out as Floyd Little fights cancer.

His friend Killorin has created a Go Fund Me where anyone can donate to help out with the medical expenses that Little and his family have to work with. The reasoning behind the fundraiser is to make sure that Little himself and the family do not have to worry about the medical expenses.
