Football Athlete Damar Hamlin Returns Home after World Joins in Prayer with Nearly $9 Million in Donations to his Charity!

Damar Romeyelle Hamlin (born on March 24th, 1998) is an American football safety for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL). During a Monday Night Football game on January 2, 2023, Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest after making a tackle. He was taken immediately to the hospital in critical condition. News of his heart trouble spread around the world and many joined in prayer for his health. His family had asked for prayers. On January 11th he was released from hospital and doctors call it a remarkable recovery. Since his dramatic illness, Damar's charity has received nearly $9 million dollars in support. According to the Website the charity is a Foundation to use as a vehicle to bring lasting impact to his community. The foundation supports toy drives, back-to-school drives, kids camps, and more. We're hopeful about Damar's future involvement in disbursing the incredibly generous contributions.
Hamlin was considered a top cornerback coming out of Central Catholic High School. His teammates wore Hamlin's #3 during their last game and won; something that caused the quarterback to say "God's real" (see link).
