William "The Refrigerator" Perry is hospitalized in his hometown of Aiken, S.C.
Perry has been diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome and CIDP, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Steve McMichael said he and his fellow Bears have "been praying for him the last few months." Despite needing a wheelchair to get around, Perry traveled to Chicago for an autograph signing last month.
"He appreciates his fans support and will be up and around soon" Agent Adam Plotkin assured NBC Chicago.
As any Bears fan will tell you, The Fridge was a force of nature on the '85 Super Bowl-winning team. He's so cool, he even has a G.I. Joe action figure made in his likeness.
We're with ya, Fridge.
