DENVER -- Brad Solomon was dealt a tough hand when he was diagnosed with stage 4 blood cancer in March. But the Iraq war veteran refuses to give up and is doing whatever it takes to make ends meet, even if that means selling his beloved baseball card collection.

After we told you his story on Sunday, support has come pouring in. Solomon spent the morning at the Veterans Affairs Hospital, then we paid him a visit to ask how he feels about the support he’s getting from the community.

“There are no words to explain it. It’s phenomenal, I’m speechless," he said.

Solomon is a huge Rockies fan. The team caught wind of his story and presented him with a gift: tickets to a game of his choice and he will attend batting practice on the field.

The Problem Solvers also wanted to help, so FOX31 presented Brad with $500 in gift cards.

You can donate to Brad’s GoFundMe account. Or you can check out his collection and buy some baseball cards. He said he’s having a big sale in front of Mike’s Stadium Sports Cards in Aurora on Saturday.

FOX31 Denver’s Drew Engelbart wrote and contributed to this report.
