The Buffalo Bills linebacker Steward proposed to 26-year-old Brittany Burns shortly after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on December 9th, 2015.
Tony and Brittany had been together for nearly four years. The couple met in college when they were both student-athletes at Clemson University in South Carolina.
Sadly, the NFL star announced on Tuesday that the love of his life had died.
Our condolences go out to Tony and Brittany and their families.
