Roman Reigns Discusses Shielding His Daughter from ‘Misguided Opinions’ about His Leukemia


Roman Reigns continues to open up about his time away from the ring battling leukemia.

Recently, he spoke to the LA Times about how hard the fight, and the need to protect his daughter from negativity and speculation about Roman’s illness on the internet:

“I’ve been with my wife since college, so she has been through this whole process with me. My big concern was my daughter, who is 11. So she’s right at that age where she’s hearing all those misguided opinions and hearing different things from different people. I thought that as long as she hears it from me, ‘This is what is going on with Dad, and I don’t want you to worry,’ that she would be OK. And she’s been great.

“It’s hard because as fathers and providers we want to protect. I’m so used to putting them in front of me and putting everyone first and making sure everything is OK. I learned it’s OK to sometimes put ourselves first when it comes to our health because then we can get healthy and take care of everyone else again.”
