Chipper Jones was making his final regular season appearance at Turner Field this past weekend against the Mets, which meant that it would be the last opportunity for many Braves fans to see the beloved third baseman. Needless to say that there were more than a few people who scraped and sacrificed to make their way to the stadium to watch Chipper play one last time, but guaranteed that none of them gave up quite as much as this diehard fan, who apparently skipped a chemo session for Chipper Jones.
I’m no oncologist, but I don’t think it’s very wise to skip chemotherapy treatment for a baseball player, even one as tremendous as Chipper Jones. That being said, you have to admire the dedication and moxie, two things that will help in the battle against whatever form of cancer they’re fighting. So would a face-to-face meeting with Chipper, because if anyone deserves to meet their favorite athlete, it’s this person.
