    <blockquote>By Clark Judge

    <img align="left" title="Rolf Benirschke" alt="Rolf Benirschke" src="http://images.sportsline.com/u/photos/football/nfl/img9558976.jpg" />If people remember him, Rolf Benirschke says, it's usually not as a professional football kicker but as someone who overcame a terrible illness.

    Well, then, fine because Rolf Benirschke is a survivor. The former San Diego kicker conquered a near-fatal episode with ulcerative colitis in 1979 and recently overcame another obstacle by winning a prolonged battle with hepatitis C -- a virus that, in its advanced stages, has a 50-50 survival rate.

    Now he's here with a message, and it couldn't be more straightforward: You, too, can overcome a life-threatening disease if you allow yourself to be tested.</blockquote>
