Pull Up a Chair

Who doesn’t love a feel good story?

I found this at Attaturk’s earlier in the week – it made my eyes leak.

About two years ago young Atticus Lane-Dupre found out he had cancer, kidney cancer. Once he recovered from the surgery and chemo he was able to fulfill a Make-A-Wish. As a total soccer fan, his wish was for his soccer team, The Green Machine, to play his hometown’s pro team, the Portland Timbers. All was arranged and Wednesday, in front of 3000 fans, the two teams went at it. Watch the vid to see how it worked out. Also, photo essay, and the local news report.

What a fabulous afternoon for memories of a lifetime, and not just for young Atticus.
