Meet Kim Bryant; she is supportive and beautiful wife of former NFL defensive end Armonty Bryant. Her 6’4″ husband played for the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions and the Oakland Raiders prior to announcing his retirement in July 2018.
Armonthy is dealing with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, which caused kidney failure and has to undergo dialysis. He needs a kidney transplant in order to have a life that isn’t home-bound.
“In the beginning, I didn’t even have an appetite,” Bryant told ESPN in an extensive feature. “I couldn’t eat before starting dialysis. I was eating one to two meals a day, not really even hungry. I’ve lost so much weight and it’s so depressing. It’s not me, you know?
“Like, when I look in the mirror, I don’t see myself. I see a sick person. I see a tube coming out of my stomach. I don’t see Armonty Bryant.”
