Adrian Peterson’s son dies from brain cancer at age 6, AJ was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last year.
At that time, Adrian and his wife Angela were told the survival rate for their son’s cancer was just 5-9%. They set up a gofundme page to help raise money for A.J.’s treatment and it has raised nearly $40,000.
When A.J. was 7, the Village of Round Lake, along with help from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, granted A.J.’s wish to become a police officer. It was just last month when A.J. was able to dress in a full police uniform and be sworn in as an honorary Round Lake Police officer.
Adrian Peterson played for the Bears from 2002-2009 after being a 6th round draft pick from Georgia Southern. He was a popular player during his time in Chicago, known for his work ethic and hard running style.
