A St. Jude Patient Will Read the Broncos First Round Draft Pick Tonight


There are few things I love more than St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital and the Denver Broncos. Those two things will come together tonight at the NFL Draft. 

When the Broncos make their first-round choice as the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft Thursday, an aspiring sports journalist and St. Jude patient will announce the team’s decision. Austin Denton, 17, a Broncos fan from Albuquerque, N.M.

Austin, a high school junior, has been in remission from a rare from of cancer called oligoastrocytoma since 2007.

He said "I can’t thank St. Jude enough for yet another great opportunity that they’ve provided to me.”
