© Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Former NFL tight end Mitchell Henry has passed away at 24.
Shortly after being released by the Baltimore Ravens last December, it was revealed that tight end Mitchell Henry was battling leukemia. It was some sad news surrounding the former undrafted free agent of the Green Bay Packers.
No one knew what the future held for Henry. But at just 24 years old, there was no real explanation for the leukemia diagnosis.
Sadly, just a month after taking to social media to ask for our prayers as he battled this horrible disease, Henry has passed away.
“Mitchell passed away with leukemia this morning at 3 am. Madison, Lesley, Ben and myself were by his side. We are so proud of Mitchell’s fight with this terrible disease, proud of how he lived his life for the past 24 years, but most of all proud of his faith and acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior,” the family said in a statement on Friday.
Those close to Henry took to social media to pay their respects for a man that was lost way too soon.
