Cynthia Meets the Pittsburgh Steelers

Name: Cynthia
Age: 18
State: West Virginia


At 6-years-old, Cynthia was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, an autoimmune disorder that affects the gastrointestinal tract. Because of this, she has endured multiple traumatic surgeries and dealt with both respiratory and kidney failures. Cynthia is on a strict daily medication regimen and must visit her doctor frequently.

Cindy’s wish was to meet the Pittsburgh Steelers and that’s exactly what she got to do. After a spa treatment and a limo ride, Cindy met the team on their practice field where they all broke into song, singing Christmas carols to her. She was in shock! After the impromptu concert, Cindy had all the Steelers sign an official Pittsburgh football for her, including her favorite players Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu.Following the meet and greet, Cindy was taken on a tour of the Steelers’ facilities and even attended a game the next day!
