This is a great story. Phil B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star has a great blog posting on Danny Webber, a 74-year-old Colts fan since the 1950s. Mr. Webber is suffering from terminal prostate cancer. One of his wishes is to attend a Colts home game.

This Sunday, he'll get his wish fulfilled.

Mr. Webber is a resident of the Heritage House, a senior community in Greensburg, IN. Per Phil B., Heritage House has a new program called Heritage House Dreams, which donated the Colts tickets to tomorrow's game to Mr. Webber.

Per the article, Webber is living day-to-day, not knowing if he will wake up the morning. The cancer has spread from his prostate to his lungs to his spleen. What it is about now for him is maintaining a comfortable quality of life. Tickets to Sunday's game are a big deal to Mr. Webber.

"Oh boy," he said. "It’s a highlight of my life."

Awesome.

Great story from Phil B. We hope Mr. Webber enjoys Sunday's game.

Tip to Sci Sci for posting about this in the FanShots Section.
