On Sunday, the first-year head coach saw a huge show of support with a Coach's Corner at FedEx Field, where dozens of cardboard cutouts of his friends and family members sat in the stands. "It means a lot," he said.

"When I first was diagnosed, I was angry," Rivera said. "People have reached out and talked to me and have given me their examples or just sent their well-wishes. It helps push me forward and I think that's so important."

He continued in the GMA interview: "When you go through something like this, you need a support system. When you have the right type of people pushing you, man, I tell you what it really helps. It gets your momentum going forward."
