Aubrey Meets WWE Star CM Punk

Aubrey with wrestler CM Punk!When I called seven year old Aubrey from Ludington Michigan to introduce myself and ask about her wish, I never dreamed this tiny little girl would wish to meet a big bad wrestler such as CM Punk.  After speaking with Aubrey I did find out she is a huge wrestling fan and her number one wish was to meet Punk.  Aubrey has been battling neuroblastoma, a form of cancer for the past two years.  I quickly got to work and contacted WWE and was delighted to find out that Aubrey would be able to meet CM Punk in my own town, Tampa, Florida.  I began making travel plans for the family.
 The other day I met Aubrey and her family and we went to The St. Pete Times Forum.  We were escorted into a “special” room and before you know it CM Punk walked thru the door.  Aubrey was so excited to meet him and I think that Mr. Punk was just as thrilled to meet her.  The two of them talked and joked around and CM kept telling her how adorable she was.  He certainly was not nearly as menacing in person as he is in the ring.  She brought him some hand drawn pictures and a note for him to take home and he brought her a hat and T-Shirt as a gift from him.  After the meeting with CM was over Aubrey and her family attended the WWE Monday Night Raw Wrestling Event.  Thanks to CM Punk for making a very special young lady very happy!!!
