Former NFL Player Loses Wife to Cancer 1 Month After Marriage

In a touching love story that shows love conquers all, former NFL player, Chris Draft married the love of his life on November 27 and then a month to the date after tying the knot, he lost his wife Keasha to cancer. LaKeasha Monique Rutledge Draft passed away on Tuesday after a battle with cancer.

Draft posted on his website, “My wife, (La)Keasha Monique Rutledge Draft passed away today at 12:04 pm. RIP Sweetie.”

According to The YBF, the two wed in a small ceremony on November 27th in Atlanta, Georgia, where Keasha, undeterred by her illness, used a wheelchair to get down the aisle and managed to take a few steps at the end.

Our condolences and prayers go out to both families.

Funeral services will be held in South Carolina on Saturday at 1 p.m.
