7yr Old lives dream on football field

I am a Husker fan from Nebraska but even if you are not you will want to watch this video.

If you haven't heard or seen this on ABC, Sports Center or CNN it is truly amazing. Many people give coach Pelini a bad wrap but after watching what he has done over the years with kids, especially this run you have to give him some credit.

Guys you may want to watch this in private or have an onion handy
Ladies you will want a box of tissues.

Very likely this was through the Friends of Jaclyn program (given that they said the 7 year has been battling brain cancer).

Jaclyn is a small girl who was adopted by the Northwestern Women's Lacrosse program a few years back. For the lacrosse players, they learned that no matter how hard practice, games, losses, etc. feel - it's nothing compared to the fight that is childhood cancer. For Jaclyn and the family, they were adopted into an amazing group of women and families who treat them like one of their own.



I know all of this because my daughter has been adopted by the John's Hopkins Women's Lacrosse program through FoJ. Just after her first birthday, as 2005 rolled in, my life changed when my daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor called an ependymoma. We had 2 weeks of daily vomiting followed by an ER visit and ended that evening with a brain tumor diagnosis. She had surgery the next day, another 2 weeks later and then had 6-weeks of radiation treatments. She had an IV line planted and later removed in her chest.

We've been blessed with 8 years of clear scans and she being cancer free.

This is her holding her little brother from last week's camping trip:

Thus your screen name! Touching story, Doug, and am glad that your daughter is doing well. Judging by that picture she is a happy kid!

As a huge college football fan and I got to see Nebraska play at Wyoming a couple seasons ago that is freakin awesome. Nothing but respect for Nebraska football.
