Markey Helps UK Football Player Get Back in the Game

In a new documentary, Kentucky Wildcats TV follows Paschal through his journey to get back on the field.

LEXINTON, Ky. (Jan. 2, 2019) -- For University of Kentucky football player Josh Paschal, 2018 was a year of highs and lows. After being diagnosed with an aggressive melanoma on the bottom of his foot last summer, Paschal underwent multiple surgeries at the UK Markey Cancer Center, where he continues to get monthly immunotherapy treatments.

After sitting out much of the season, Paschal returned to play in November. He begins 2019 on a major high by being part of UK's Citrus Bowl win over Penn State yesterday. 

In this new documentary released over the holidays, Kentucky Wildcats TV follows Paschal through his journey to get back on the field.
