For a child battling a life-threatening illness, hope and joy can sometimes be lost. On Monday night at the Denver Broncos home opener, 21-year-old Denver resident Woody Roseland will leave the doctors and medicine behind as his dream to meet his hero quarterback Tim Tebow becomes a reality.
Struck by cancer at the age of 16, Roseland has overcome many obstacles, including being diagnosed with cancer on five separate occasions. After a few more rounds of chemotherapy, he will look forward to being in remission from his tough medical battle. Until that day comes, there is only one thing on Roseland’s mind: meeting Tebow.
Through the Tim Tebow Foundation’s Wish 15 (W15H) program, in partnership with Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Roseland will for one day put the thoughts of his cancer and unwelcome treatments to the side and replace them with unforgettable memories on Sports Authority Field at Mile High. As W15H’s kickoff dream, Roseland will spend pregame on the field before meeting Tebow, the person he believes instills inspiration and faith in so many.
“I think it is such a refreshing change of pace to have a person like Tim Tebow, as a professional athlete, in your city,” said Roseland. “What an asset it is to have someone who is so selfless and such a positive force on and off the field.”
