Marcus Williams is all too familiar with adversity. He has been faced with many obstacles during his journey to becoming a professional athlete, including the infamous “Minnesota Miracle” which has proven to be one of his greatest trials and triumphs of his career - turning his “NIGHTMARE” into his “MOTIVATION.” However, on-field challenges lack in comparison to the pain that comes with continuously watching close friends and family members lose their battles to cancer. Over the last five years, he has stood alongside his aunt (Dionne Wren / "Annie Ray Ray" - Breast Cancer), his cousin (Jessica Grubbs - Breast Cancer at 31 years old), his grandfather (Richard Glennon Boyd – Lung Cancer), and a good friend’s mother (Brain Cancer), encouraging and motivating them as they fought their nightmares daily. For Marcus, it is much more than just football…it is life. This is why he has chosen to team up with the V Foundation for the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats initiative in order to raise money for cancer research, so that everyone has a chance to achieve Victory Over Cancer and turn their NIGHTMARE into MOTIVATION.
