Make-A-Wish Sends Cheyenne’s Biggest Packers Fan To Green Bay
Forgive Hunter Bjorkquist if he's rooting for the wrong team on Sunday. This week, Make-A-Wish Wyoming is flying the Central High senior and his family to see his favorite team the Green Bay Packers host the Denver Broncos at Lambeau Field.
Bjorkquist was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma on his 16th birthday and has bravely battled the disease for the past 18 months. The diehard Packers fan was recently honored as the 600th Make-A-Wish recipient in Wyoming.
Hunter's cancer is currently in remission and he credits his family and friends for aiding his recovery.
"You really learn who cares about you when you go through something like this," Bjorkquist told the Wyoming Tribune Eagle. "I kept going every day, tried to not let it bother me so much, and had my friends behind me the whole way. I’m grateful."
Before the game on Sunday, Hunter will have the chance to make a new friend.
"I can’t wait to meet Aaron Rodgers," Hunter said. "He’s the real G.O.A.T. (greatest player of all time), not Tom Brady.”
