Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is awake and improving after going into cardiac arrest during the Bills/Bengals game on Monday night. Hamlin is connected to a breathing tube so has been communicating by writing and, according to reports, one of the first things he asked was "did the Bills win the game". The doctors had a perfect response. They said, "The answer is yes, Damar, you won the game of life." The NFL announced they are officially canceling the Bills/Bengals game, but the week 18 games will still be played on schedule. In what has hopefully been communicated to Hamlin, his toy drive fundraiser has now raised almost $8 million. Keeping our thoughts and prayers going for a thorough recovery!!!
