NFL Hall of Famer, Chiefs Legend, Reveals Stage 4 Cancer Battle

Curley Culp played defensive tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1968 to 1974.

Culp was a key member of the Chiefs defense during his six and a half seasons with the team, helping them win Super Bowl IV against the Minnesota Vikings in 1969.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013 after a 14-year NFL career.

Culp announced earlier today, November 16, that he is battling stage 4 cancer.

Culp Makes a Public Statement in an Attempt to Raise Awareness

Culp revealed his ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer in an emotional message on Twitter.

I have stage 4 pancreatic cancer, as my followers, family, and friends are aware.

Donate to cancer organizations in your area to help eradicate this dreadful disease.

Love your life, your family, and your friends, and pray to God for physical and spiritual healing.

“To my followers, family, and friends, I have stage 4 pancreatic cancer,” he said.

Donate to cancer organizations in your area to help eradicate this dreadful disease.

Love your life, your family, and your friends, and ask God for physical and spiritual healing.

HOF(hashtag)13 Curley Culp.”

Culp asked for nothing in return except donations to help cancer patients in the future, in a truly selfless call to action.

Most, if not all, of us know someone who has experienced what the NFL legend is going through right now.

Even if it wasn’t pancreatic cancer, the pain and consequences of any disease of this magnitude cannot be underestimated.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Culp, his family, and his friends.

It seemed appropriate to use a quote from his Hall of Fame bio.

As Culp once put it:

I’ve learned that football is more than just a sport; it’s a life lesson in what it means to work as part of a team…I’ve learned how pain can help you develop character and endurance, and I believe that life is like a long and exciting football game where every play can change the outcome.

This man’s character and endurance are undeniable.

Curley, keep going; your football game isn’t over yet.
