    That is a great story and LT has done a lot of other similar things like that for less fortunate kids and kids with medical conditions.

    The story gave me goosebumps. It's hard to express how fortunate we are to have such a classy guy on our team as LT.

    Make a wish is a great organization that has been doing this stuff since at least the early 80s.

    I hear you but LT has given me goosebumps before.

    (I can't provide a link but...) At the end of his rookie season, he was signing autographs. Someone showed up and asked that he sign a jersey to his #1 fan. (This fan was a kid in a wheelchair.)

    LT asked "can you come back here in an hour?"
    The fan asked "why?"
    LT answered "I want to meet my #1 fan."

    This fan wasn't sure what that meant but returned an hour later, as requested.
    LT suggested that he will follow his car to his house.
    The brother showed up with the jersey and LT.
    LT stayed at the house for 20 minutes and had his picture taken with them.
    The family sent that picture to local news (without Chargers request or LT's) just to say "Thank You."

    THERE IS NOT MANY PEOPLE IN HIS SITUATION THAT WILL GO THAT DISTANCE!!!

    WE LOVE YOU, LT!!!!!! :bow: :yes:

    I met those guys a the tailgater. The were the winners of a fan story contest Trumpy did. Their brother had ALS. Nasty disease that took my oldest brother as well.

    LT is genuine.
