Ron Rivera celebrates last cancer treatment

Washington's head football coach got to ring the bell after 7 weeks of therapy

Two wins in two days for Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera. 

First, his team dominated the Cowboys on Sunday. Then on Monday an even bigger win. Rivera celebrated his last cancer treatment.

As it usually happens, the hospital hallways were lined with nurses, doctors and staff as Rivera walked the walk.

After the cheering, the confetti and well wishes, he celebrated by ringing the bell of hope.
