Paintball Shot Finds Cancer

Gary Burrow’s, 51, was in the field and was struck by a paintball at Skirmish in Nottingham in January 2005. The paintball hit was under his chin. In an attempt to reduce the swelling from the impact, Burrow put ice over the welt, but two months later, inflammation reoccured and he sought out medical attention. Turns out, the lump was Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Months after the cancer removal, doctors found that there were two more lumps in his groin. As of now, Burrow is receiving chemotherapy for lumps in his stomach amd chest. Burrow says he owes his life to paintball because if he hadn’t got shot in the neck that day, he would not be here today.
