My MG Solemates spotlight: Dexter and Cheryl Williams

Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams has always been close with his mother, Cheryl, as he pursued his lifelong dream of playing in the NFL. But her MG diagnosis brought them closer together.

They are each a rock for the other. Dexter uses his mother’s battle with MG to fuel his NFL career, while Cheryl uses his football journey as a reason to keep fighting. It’s why Dexter represented MG for this year’s My Cause My Cleats program and continues to advocate for the MG community today.
