Description: Rod Payne, the former All-American center at the University of Michigan and a Super Bowl champion with the Baltimore Ravens, never set out to explain the meaning of life to Steve Rom, a sportswriter and the kind of guy most professional athletes keep at a distance. After Steve was diagnosed with leukemia, however, Rod left his job as co-host of a daily sports radio talk show in Ann Arbor, his first post-football career, to help rally his friend back to health. What ensued was a 10-month battle for survival, one that would ultimately turn these friends into brothers. Tonight, Payne and Rom will discuss Centered by a Miracle: A True Story of Friendship, Football and Life (Sports Publishing, $24.95), the book that tells their extraordinary story. This event is presented in collaboration with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of South Florida.
