Video: Ron Rivera rings bell after finishing last cancer treatment

This is the best "victory Monday". This morning Ron Rivera rang the bell signifying that he has finished his last round of cancer treatment. Although in the coming weeks he will continue to follow up with scans, he is on the path to recovery.

Rivera was diagnosed with Squamos Cell cancer in his lymph nodes in August and has battled through 7 weeks of treatments. Occasionally this season the strain of the treatment has been visible as he occasionally sat down and took breaks on the sidelines, but he has not missed a game.

This is amazing. Many people on

It's a different kind of Victory Monday 💛
