DENVER -- John was recently admitted to Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center as he battles leukemia.

On Tuesday afternoon, he couldn’t have asked for more inspiration:  A large group of his friends carried banners and Broncos flags, then began chanting his name outside his hospital room window.

Several times, the Denver man raised his fists as those closest to his heart repeated his name.

There is no official prognosis, but if the sign of a man is the company he keeps, John is going to beat the disease, and live to chant about it.
