New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder has not had an easy life off the field as he was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2014 and his son Hudson was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor in his kidneys. Earlier this year, the Solders received news that Hudson’s tumors were no longer growing and that they would just have to monitor the cancer.

Unfortunately, Hudson has had to return to chemotherapy in recent weeks, according to NBC’s Michele Tafoya during the NBC broadcast.

“His little boy Hudson has a rare pediatric kidney cancer,” Tafoya reported. “Hudson was here at the game tonight. Solder told me we won a Super Bowl before, but this time Hudson was there so we can enjoy the highs as much as we feel the lows. Hudson is now two [years old] and just started chemo again a couple weeks ago.”

The Solder family were at the stadium on Sunday night to participate in the NFL’s Crucial Catch initiative to help raise awareness of the various forms of cancer and how to fight them. Former Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi was in attendance, as was Tom Brady’s mother and Marcus Cannon’s wife.

Nate Solder has so much more to fight for than what takes place on the field and Patriots Nation should continue to send their love and support towards his family. Solder appreciates how much the team is able to help him through these tough times.

“It’s difficult,” Solder said about playing football while his son battles cancer. “It weighs on my mind, but I have a great team that supports me so much and I don’t think I could make it through it without those guys.”
