A Story of Inspiration: Chris and Keasha Draft


It's an amazing love story that shows love conquers all. And sadly, it came to an end this week. Former NFLer Chris Draft lost his wife Keasha (Rutledge) of 1 month to cancer, a friend of Chris' confirms to  

35-year-old Chris Draft married the love of his life, Keasha, in a touching ceremony November 27th in Atlanta.  The bride was battling cancer and used a wheelchair to meet her groom down the aisle.  But amazingly walked the last few steps, as seen in their wedding video inside. {Source}

Anaheim native Chris has played for 7 teams during his NFL career which began with the Chicago Bears in 1998.  

He last played for the Washington Redskins in 2010.  Chris dedicated much of his life to giving back to kids, families, service projects, and his own Chris Draft Family Foundation, which empowers families to live healthy lifestyles. 

I was in tears watching both of these videos. Brings light to the realization that life is so precious! My heart and prayers go out to both families.
