Bills' defensive back Damar Hamlin is captivating the world with his comeback story after suffering from an on-field cardiac arrest a week ago.
Hamlin was discharged from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and then flown to a hospital in Buffalo on Monday after just having his breathing tube removed on Friday.
Last week, Hamlin spoke to teammates and attended a team meeting via a Zoom conference, and the week was then capped off with an impressive touchdown off of a kick return in the opening play of Sunday's against the rival Patriots. Running back Nyheim Hines made the spectacular score in Hamlin's honor with the injured teammate taking to Twitter to express his excitement.
Game day wasn't the only positive thing Hamlin was able to witness. Just a day after his on-field collapse, his 2020 toy drive campaign, The Chasing M's Foundation Community Toy Drive on GoFundMe, surpassed the initial goal of $2,500, and raised more than $8.6 million.
However, Hamlin is still looking to pay it forward, but this time to those that helped save his life. The grateful player has a trio of t-shirts printed with the phrase "Did We Win?" — Hamlin's first words after waking up from his injuries — up for sale with the proceeds to be donated to first responders and the University of Cincinnati Trauma Center.
"I want to give back an ounce of the love y'all showed me," Hamlin said in a tweet.
