This Olympian Overcame Cancer and a Broken Neck to Stay in the Game

“I broke my neck. I beat cancer. And I’m going to Rio.” That pretty much says it all. Jillion Potter plays rugby for Team USA and she’s one of the fiercest competitors around. She says that rugby has taught her to get back up after every tackle, and that applies both on the field and off. If anything, she says surviving cancer and overcoming a broken neck have prepared her for the Olympic Games. If you like this video, like us on facebook and twitter.
