Clemson QB Kelly Bryant looks back on his time spent at Children’s Hospital of Georgia

When a coach noticed Kelly Bryant vomiting blood during halftime at a basketball game, he knew Bryant needed a doctor. After Bryant’s parents took him to Children’s Hospital of Georgia at Augusta University, an MRI of his abdomen showed something serious: an abscess the size of a grapefruit. Following emergency surgery, diet restrictions, medications, an extended hospital stay and a colostomy, Bryant wondered if he would ever play football again. Now the starting quarterback for Clemson, Bryant looks back on his remarkable recovery saying, “It just really puts in perspective that no matter what I go through moving forward, I can get through anything.”
