    It's kinda neat because Anna is from the town I live in currently. I remember a few months ago people were raising money for the family all over town and there were giant banners all over town saying "Welcome Back Anna" and such. My roommates know her and her family, since it is after all a fairly small town.

    Good luck to your son, Jim.
    I'll be rooting for him. Not a real prayer kinda guy, but it can't do any harm.
    Please let us know how it goes.

    What a sweet and touching story.
    It was really nice to read how Donald Driver showed up even though he had the day off.
    Packers are class all around.
    Thanx for posting.

    This comment that someone posted sums it all up nicely.
    Great story. Shows the class of many Packer players. In the picture you see MM there as well. That the players and coaches take time out from preseason practice for this shows why the Packers ARE Americas Team!
