UK Documentary Shows Paschal’s Fight Against Cancer

UK Defensive Lineman, Josh Paschal, has had a trying year and he's seeing the light on the other side.

Before the start of last season, Paschal was diagnosed with malignant melanoma on the bottom of his foot. He underwent three surgeries and that was followed by ongoing monthly immunotherapy treatments. He returned during the next-to-last game of the season against Middle Tennessee in Kroger Field, played at Louisville and helped the Wildcats win the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

On Wednesday, Paschal tweeted out that he had undergone his final immunotherapy treatment and he gave thanks to a lot of people.
