Encouraging news for Trey Rood (AJC)

There’s more good news for former West Forsyth football player Trey Rood, who was diagnosed with life-threatening cancer (Stage IV metastatic melanoma) in June 2009.

All of Rood’s tumors in his chest area have shown to be stable or shrinking, while some have disappeared, after a recent battery of tests at Houston’s M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Rood also had an MRI on his brain which was clear. “Overall, he got an A+ from his doctor,” said Rood’s mother.

Kingdom Kids granted Rood a “wish” by providing tickets to the SEC Championship game.

Rood is a freshman at Georgia and returns to classes this week.
