Auburn Signee Brodarious Hamm Diagnosed With Cancer

Brodarious Hamm, a 2016 Auburn offensive tackle signee, has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a form cancer. The 6-foot-5 lineman has started chemotherapy, and still looks to enroll at Auburn in May, or August if that isn't feasible. Hamm spoke to 247Sportsabout his prognosis, which is fortunately positive.

“At first, I was scared,” Hamm told AuburnUndercover. “But I talked with the doctor and he said I’d be alright. He was just like, “This is nothing to worry about. Believe in the treatment and believe in God and everything will be alright.”

That was about “two or three weeks ago.”

Last week, Hamm started chemotherapy.

“It hasn’t been bad,” he said. “I haven’t lost any weight.”

Hamm is the second Auburn signee to be diagnosed with a form of cancer in the last few months. In December, defensive tackle Tashawn Manning began treatment for Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia. We hope both future Tigers make full recoveries, and can hit the field soon.
