Justin Foster went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago expecting to get just a regular checkup. What he got was an unexpected surprise–a good surprise—from his doctor.
Foster’s doctor at the Duke Medical Center in Durham felt he was well on his way to a full recovery after having complications from COVID-19, which caused more issues with his asthma, a condition he has been fighting since he was a kid.
But Foster did not get just a clean bill of health.
“In the next month or two, she thought I’d recover enough to compete at the college level, and she motivated me and said that if I wanted to play [football] again, she’d encourage me to and support me and she would do the best she could to get me back healthy,” Foster said.
