Hillman was diagnosed with renal medullary carcinoma, a "rare form of cancer that primarily affects young African Americans" in August.

Hillman has been receiving treatment for his illness, according to his family, but it has not been successful. Hillman is said to be comfortable in hospice care.

Hillman is "not doing well," according to Orlando Franklin, who played offensive tackle for the Broncos from 2011 to 2014.

Derek Wolfe, a former Broncos defensive tackle from 2012 to 2019, revealed on his radio show that Hillman is suffering from pneumonia and liver cancer.

Hillman was the Broncos' leading rusher on their Super Bowl 50-winning team in 2015, starting 10 of 16 games and rushing for 863 yards on 207 carries.

Hillman, 31, was in the third round out of San Diego State in 2012. He played four seasons with the Broncos before splitting the 2016 season between the Minnesota Vikings and the San Diego Chargers.
