Meet Anijae! This 17-year-old Charlotte native has a big heart for helping others. Anijae has been a Steelers fan since the day he was born. He was even sent home from the hospital in a Steelers blanket!
Just by looking at Anijae you wouldn’t know that this high schooler’s world was thrown upside down. In 2022, he was given the sudden diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma; a type of cancer that attacks the lymph nodes.
Even though he is currently going through intensive treatment, Anijae has his sights set on a bright future ahead. He has big aspirations of becoming a football coach & an athletic trainer, so he can be a positive force in athlete’s lives, and empower others.
He dreams of being in the presence of the many athletes and coaches that are giving him the strength to keep fighting. It would be a Dream come true if Anijae was able to cheer on the Steelers and wave that Terrible Towel on home turf!
