'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Professional Football Hall-of-Famer Len Dawson
Date:10/29/2008

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the football season swings into high gear, Sharing Miracles, a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients, will feature Super Bowl-winning quarterback and Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Len Dawson, a prostate cancer survivor. Sharing Miracles now shows on more than 200 television stations across the United States.

A first-round draft pick out of Purdue University, Dawson played three uneventful seasons in the NFL. However, after joining his college coach and mentor, Hank Stram, he blossomed into a superstar with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Dawson spent 13 seasons with the Chiefs and retired in 1975, having thrown a career total of 28,711 yards. Noted for his calm approach to every situation, Dawson was often praised by Stram as "the most accurate passer in pro football." He is perhaps best remembered on the field for his outstanding performance in leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a 23-7 upset of the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. He was named the game's Most Valuable Player.

Dawson still holds Chiefs career marks for pass rating, attempts, completions, passing yards and touchdowns. In 1987, he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Following retirement, he was best known for hosting HBO's "Inside the NFL" for 25 years.

He was caught off guard in 1991, however, when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer after getting screened at the urging of his wife. Fortunately, the cancer was in its early stages and was treatable. He says, "When I grew up, when you talked about cancer, you didn't talk about surviving; you didn't talk about taking care of it or curing it. Instead, you asked, 'How long do I have?'" But that's not the reaction that Dawson received. "The doctors told me that if the cancer was contained within the prostate gland and if we removed it, it would be gone. Thankfully, it was."
