Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin is using his scary life experience on the field to help make a change for children nationwide.
Blavity covered the NFL safety’s collapse on the field during a Monday Night Football game due to cardiac arrest in January. Fans at the game and those tuning in watched anxiously, hoping he’d be fine.
