North Carolina brothers Preston and Parker Jackson were both diagnosed with the same pancreatic cancer as their father, Wayne. Wayne was diagnosed with MEN-1, a hereditary condition associated with tumors of hormone producing glands, in November 2014 after doctors found 12 cancerous pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in his body.
In February 2016, Parker was diagnosed with the same condition and six weeks later his older brother, Preston, was diagnosed. Both brothers–18 and 21 years old–were found to each have two tumors on their respective pancreases, PEOPLE reports.
Back in November, Tim Tebow’s W15H Program were informed that the brothers’ one wish was to meet the Heisman trophy winner. So, in true Tebow fashion, he surprised them with a lunch at Auburn, a behind-the-scenes tour of their football facilities, and some time on the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Check out the video below that was put together by Tebow’s W15H Foundation, which has granted more than 72 official W15H experiences at many venues including NFL Games, Award Shows, Disney World, SEC Nation College Game Days and more.
Squeeze your loved ones a little tighter this holiday season.
