(WHAS11) -- Several current and former University of Kentucky athletes are rallying around a Northern Kentucky man with stage four colon cancer.
Senior wide receivers La'Rod King and Arron Boyd and former basketball player Eloy Vargas made a special trip to Newport Kentucky Monday to visit Tommy Luttrell.
Luttrell, 29, is a University of Kentucky fan. Yesterday, doctors said he had less than 24 hours to live. King tweeted photos of the visit and gave Tommy his favorite hat.
Former UK players John Wall, Michael Kidd Gilchrist and Shane Boyd have been tweeting about Tommy using #prayfortommy.
