Katharyn R., 84, Levittown, PA

Katharyn Reid, 84, has been an avid Eagles’ fan for decades, even painting her living room “Eagles’ Green.”  This mother of eight, grandmother of 13, great-grandmother to 17, with one more great-grandchild and one great-great-grandchild on the way, is well known in her family for her loyalty to her beloved Eagles.  In fact, there is “no chit-chatting allowed” by her during the games.  Sadly, Reid is battling brain cancer and currently undergoing chemotherapy.  To boost her spirits, her daughter, Nancy Sherlock, submitted a wish request on her behalf, writing that a visit from a Philadelphia Eagles’ player would provide a much-needed respite from her medical treatments.  When the Eagles heard of Reid’s story, they jumped at the chance to brighten this deserving senior’s day and arranged to have Eagles great Mike Quick and an Eagles’ cheerleader visit Reid and make her wish come true. The Eagles’ organization also arranged to have Jeremy Maclin record a special video message just for Reid which was shown to her that day.  During the visit, Quick called his broadcasting partner, Merrill Reese, and put him on speaker so that Reid could talk to him.  Thanks to the Philadelphia Eagles and Mike Quick for granting this special lady’s wish!

    How heartwarming and wonderful that Katharyn was allowed to realize her dreams. And, kudos to the Philadelphia Eagles! Katharyn will be in my prayers. She, obviously, has a great deal of love and support from her large family! Good job Twilight! This is how we should live our lives….helping others and being selfless.
    God Bless You All, Linda L
