Codys wish to meet the Packers

This December cody's wish to MEET Aaron Rodgers from the Packers was granted when the family was invited to attend the December 9th game against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.

 Cody is a Boise teenager who suffers from epilepsy and an immune deficiency. He and his two brothers love sports especially soccer and football. Cody's favorite teams are the UK's Arsenal and the Green Bay Packers.  Lisa,  Cody's mom, wrote us about the wish experience:

 "After watching the Packers practice outdoors on Friday we thought the wish was wrapping up but then learned we were going to have lunch together and would eat in the team's dining room. The players then started filtering in to eat as they returned from practice. I can't tell you how cool it was for Cody and his brothers to be eating lunch and have Packer players come up and introduce themselves, visit a moment and sign his football. Each of them was so friendly and happy to meet him. Much credit goes to Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews for taking so much time out of their schedules to visit with the boys and to make them feel as if they were as happy to meet Cody as he was to meet them. It is a memory Cody and his brothers will share for the rest of their lives."
