Jeff Dickerson could use all the prayers right now.
Friends and colleagues of the ESPN reporter took to social media this week to ask fans to send prayers for him as he is currently battling for his life right now.
It appears, but has not been confirmed, that Dickerson may be fighting colon cancer.
In February 2019, his wife, Caitlin Dickerson, lost her 7.5-year battle with cancer. She left behind Jeff and their seven-year-old child.
Now, that young child is two years older and is hoping that his father can pull through.
Dickerson has been a veteran presence for ESPN in the Chicago market, first joining ESPN Chicago back in 2001 and most recently covering the Bears for ESPN.com.
