We had a fantastic time at the game! Being on the field for the pre-game warmup was an incredible experience that we'll always remember. Jimmy was so excited to attend his first NFL game. You certainly gave him a lot to smile about! He starts his next round of chemotherapy tomorrow. The memories of being at the game will help sustain him through the treatment, and give him stories to share with his doctors and nurses.

Thank you so much for the movie gift cards! Ben’s dad takes him and his brothers to a movie every year on Christmas Eve. This year we are so happy that Ben has finished his chemo and is feeling well enough to keep up their tradition. The cards will be used to buy tickets to see Star Wars and get some special treats at the concession stand.
