Kelly Stafford says the outpouring of support during her brain tumor surgery and recovery helped her make it through. It also made Detroit feel like home. But it wasn't always that way.

"We've been here 11 years. Detroit loves its athletes. And they're also very tough on its athletes. Especially the quarterback," Kelly said. "So for these 11 years, it's been tough for me to really fall in love with this city because I just feel like, they don't really like us."
