Damar Hamlin continues to be an inspiration for everyone across the country. In the weeks since suffering cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Football game between the Bills and Bengals, he’s made tremendous progress.
Saturday, an Instagram story from Bills linebacker Matt Milano showed that Hamlin appeared to be back in the team building in Orchard Park. It was another incredible development in his remarkable story.
Immediately after collapsing on the field, medical personnel performed CPR and rushed Hamlin to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. For several days, Hamlin was listed in critical condition.
Players, coaches, analysts and fans have shown nothing but support for the 24-year-old Hamlin since the frightening medical emergency. This is another amazing update that everyone will love hearing.
Damar Hamlin Released From Hospital Earlier This Week
Damar Hamlin’s visit to Orchard Park comes just a few days after he was released from Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute.
“We have completed a series of tests and evaluations. And in consultation with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills,” Hamlin’s care team said.
On Monday, Hamlin was transported from the UC Medical Center to Buffalo General Medical Center after showing improvement.
NFL Fans Show Major Support
In the days after Damar Hamlin’s terrifying collapse on Monday Night Football, fans from around the league showed incredible support. By Jan. 4, more than $6.5 million had been donated to his charity toy drive.
But those donations didn’t just come from fans. Colts owner Jim Irsay and Patriots owner Robert Kraft also contributed significantly to the cause.
Irsay donated $25,003. Kraft added $18,003. Those two donations alone massively surpassed Hamlin’s initial goal of $2,500. He was using the money to buy presents for children around the holidays.
