They’re telling us this, and it’s eye-opening. I’ve never heard of this, ever. I’m like ‘There’s nothing you guys can do? There’s no cure?’…

~ Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Evan Rodriguez, on the prenatal anencephaly diagnosis of he and wife Olivia’s daughter, Layla Sky, as quoted by the Tampa Bay Times, July 31
