Earl Thomas Family

Earl was born on the 7th of May in 1989 in a town called Orange to Debbie and Earl Snr. In 1987, two years before his birth, Earl’s mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer and was told by the doctors she would not be able to have any children. The doctors also told her she had just six months to live if she didn’t undergo a hysterectomy to remove the lymph nodes. After taking several tests, when she was ready to finally go under the knife, the last round of tests threw up a surprise – the cancer was gone!

She didn’t have to undergo any chemotherapy, surgery or radiation. According to her, she didn’t see it much as a miracle but rather saw it as a blessing. The real miracle did come a year later when she took in with Earl and delivered him in 1989.

As a young child, his father soon noticed the immense ability his son had in playing football. Earl was once quoted to have said that the more he worked at the game he loved, the more skills he developed.

Due to the circumstances of his birth, over the course of his career, he has earned various nicknames but his mother still calls him her “miracle baby”.
