The Chicago Bears recently helped make a Northbrook boy's wish come true!
10-year-old Collin Wehr loves the Bears and has always dreamed of becoming an NFL Network reporter covering his favorite team.
Thanks to Make-A-Wish Foundation, his dream came true! Collin got to spend a day with the Chicago Bears as a real NFL Network reporter!
It was a special day for Collin, who has been fighting for his life ever since being diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in January 2010. For one special day, he got to forget about the surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy.
You can watch the happy cub reporter at work in several NFL Network segments. This clip highlights Collin's big day with the Chicago Bears. Here, he interviews Charles "Peanut" Tillman and finds out how he got his nickname. And in this video, he does a Top 10 list of his favorite NFL Network sportscasters. Collin does such a great job!!
