    Robert Müller- A Role Model

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_M%C3%BCller wrote:In November 2006, Müller was diagnosed with a brain tumor, known as Glioblastoma multiforme. Part of the tumor was surgical removed, followed by chemotherapy and radiation treatment
    later in the year. It seemed to be impossible to play professional ice
    hockey any longer but Müller recovered and had his comeback on February
    3, 2007 at the DEL All-Star Game 2007. He was reappointed in the national team at the Skoda Cup in Switzerland.
    In August 2008, while playing for the Kölner Haie,
    the tumor continued to grow, requiring another operation. After that he
    absolved his physician, Wolfgang Wick, from patient/physician
    confidentiality. Wick told the media that Müller was terminally ill and
    already exceeded anticipated average life, as only 3% of the people
    having the same cancer live over five years.
    On December 18, 2008, his doctor decided Müller was no longer cleared to play, as his condition grew worse.

    Robert Muller is Germany’s premiere ice hockey goal tender in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. Muller was recently diagnosed with
    an incurable, malignant type of brain cancer. Despite his dangerous
    condition, he continues to play his favorite sport. It is to note that
    Muller had an operation in 2006 which removed some parts of the tumor
    and went on to play in the arena while he was undergoing chemotherapy
    sessions. In an amazing feat, he played well in Germany’s behalf at the
    championship event in Canada. The tumor began to grow again last summer
    and he recently went on his second operation. He continues to play up
    to this day and is continuing to inspire people.

    This is a guy i think we can all look up to.

    I recently stumbled up this article, and it left me speechless. In a world of multi-million dollar contracts, its nice to see that somewhere in the world, some still play for the love of the sport.

    I couldn't find any recent information on him... anyone know anything?

    Holy cow. That is absolutely and positively the most amazing story. I feel very, very badly for him, but I love that he's doing what he loves to do - not for the cheque, but for the passion of the game.

    Good luck Robert! We can only hope for the best.
