Default Great Story! Some of you may remember....

A few of us last year pitched in and bought this for Harrison (10 years old) along with the MANY of you who sent cards to Harrison after he was diagnosed with Leukemia.


His dad is a professor at the college I attend (SEBTS)and he was VERY thankful. Harrison LOVED all the cards/memrobilia and he had an awesome time showing me what he had received. He also got a phone call from Peyton and Eli Manning and got to chat with them as well.

Well he submitted his wish to the Make a Wish Foundation and he gets to go to the BCS National Championship Game! He is a huge 'Bama fan! He is still going through Chemotherapy and will continue for some time!

Here is his Updates on Facebook.

Just a reminder to never take anything for granted!

I'm relatively new to the boards here, so I haven't had the priveledge of running into Harrison as of yet, but I will keep him in my prayers, and be rooting for the Tide in January knowing he will be there and its his big wish!

And BTW, that is a CRAZY sick card! WOW!

Absolutely! Giving a gift is a lot better than receiving a gift!

I remember pitching in some bucks for that, wondered what card was bought for him because my goldfish memory couldn't remember.

Is this the neighbor of yours or was that someone else's story?
