Shortly after being selected in the 1st round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers Simmons was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and was not sure if he would be able to continue his football career. However, with the help of doctors and a strong support network, he returned to the field the same year he was diagnosed in 2003 and played six more seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before finishing up his career with the Patriots and Bills in 2009.

“My story is unique, but everybody’s story living with diabetes or some type of illness is,” said Simmons while at an American Diabetes Association Walk to Stop Diabetes last year. “I just try to use my story to inspire folks that no matter what you have going on in your life you take it with a grain of salt and find something positive out of it.
