Johnny Manziel shares message of support for Texas A&M student battling cancer

Shelby Smith, a freshman student at Texas A&M, was diagnosed with a rare cancer, olfactory neuroblastoma, shortly after starting her first semester at A&M this fall.

Since the diagnosis, her story and a GoFundMe page has made its rounds on social media, and it caught the attention of former Browns quarterback and Aggies star Johnny Manziel.

Manziel shared Smith’s story on his Instagram Thursday and offered his own message of support.

He wrote:

Aggies never fight alone. Cant imagine going through something like this, let alone finding out on such a special day and big time in your life. I wish you all the best and you will be in my prayers continuously. Link for the GoFundMe in my Bio #gigemforever👍

An account with the name “Johnathan Manziel” also donated $1,000 to Smith’s GoFundMe page.
