Stokes hangs out with Memphis Teen Battling Cancer

VolNation,

Trey Erwin, the 15 year-old Collierville High School football player who was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, received special visitors yesterday. Jarnell Stokes and Collierville Alderman Tony Sarwar visited & prayed with Trey and his family yesterday afternoon. While Jarnell was there, Coach Martin called Trey to talk to him about his battle with cancer. I will attach the picture of Trey and Jarnell below. #PrayforTrey



Help us raise money for Trey and St. Jude

Thats awful. My prayers go out to him and his family.
It speaks a lot to Jarnell's character. Most 18yr olds thoughts are not on the needy. Way to rep the school and state of TN!

Agree me too. 15 is too young for this terrible disease. Heck any age is too young for this disease.

Way to go Jarnell.

Unfair of what the kid Was dealt. Must of been cool for such a local amateur star to take interest in him. Stokes and Martin are good character men.

Coach Martin continues to impress me with his faith and character. We hear so much about the negatives in the AD, but I am very proud to have he and Jarnell Stokes representing the University of Tennessee.

What an awful thing for a 15 y.o. to have to go through, but thankfully his faith is strong.

Damn, kid looks good to have pancreatic cancer, let alone stage 4.

Prayers are about all that you can get at that point, because nothing outside of a miracle can help stage 4. Terrible for someone so young.

My grandmother died from this disease....She looked the same as she always did up till the weekend she passed away. It's a horrible disease that only a miracle can fix....My prayers and thoughts are with this kid. Stokes and Martin continue to impress.

Wow, this is great to see. Everyone always wants to talk about the negative issues dealing with athletes. This is the type of attention the media should focus on. Stokes still a teen himself, being there with this young man showing him support is inspiring. I know there are other athletes that do this type of stuff too, but it is special when it is a VOL. The kid himself has to be very courageous knowing that his battle is almost impossible. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Here is a funny picture of Jarnell's shoe that he signed for Trey next to Trey's shoe that is the same model shoe (except in white). That is one HUGE shoe!!
