New England Patriots Help Grant Spencer's Wish

Wish child Spencer
Spencer, 17, attended the New England Patriots playoff game on January 14 for his wish!

He had a very special visit to Gillette Stadium ahead of the game, made possible with the partnership of the New England Patriots. Spencer and his family toured The Hall and the Pro Shop, joined the Patriots’ VIP Tailgate, and watched the team warm-up from the sidelines. The true surprises began with a personal meeting with Robert Kraft, during which Spencer was named honorary captain and learned that he would be on the field for the coin toss! For this avid Patriots fan who has been undergoing treatment for lymphoma, the excitement of his wish coming true -- and the Patriots' win over the Texans -- made it a day like no other!
