Washington Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland was brought to tears Saturday afternoon as he listened to Denise Johnson talk about growing up with sickle-cell disease.

Breeland wrote on Instagram that Johnson touched him deeply, as he learned that she’s not only fighting for her own life, but trying to raise awareness  about the disease as well.

He even included some of her words in the post, as you can see in the caption of the photo above.
