AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A cancer survivor is crediting a football legend and UCHealth for saving his life. He says an ad featuring Peyton Manning helped him find the medical care he needed. Manning may no longer be making plays on the field, but he helped Joe Murphy of Arvada score a future.
As a surprise, on Wednesday, Murphy was presented with both a jersey and an official football signed by the former Broncos quarterback. The items are more than just sports memorabilia to the 58-year-old.
“Peyton Manning, thank you very much. You saved my life,” said Murphy.
It was last October when Murphy saw the NFL legend do a commercial for UCHealth.
