CONGRATS, COACH!

Five days a week, new head coach for the Central Michigan Chippewas John Bonamego had to go to and from Ann Arbor just to receive treatment for the cancer he was diagnosed with. Found in his left tonsil, spread to his lymph nodes, Bonamego was determined and committed to beat it and be all squared away for football season.

He's been proud of the friends he made at the hospital, seeing people ring a bell to announce and celebrate the progress that people have made to end their radiation treatments. Just under two weeks before the Chippewas kick off at home against Oklahoma State, it was his turn to ring the bell.

From the Hustle Belt community to you, congrats on this huge milestone, coach Bonamego!
