Alex's Wish to Meet Matt Ryan

Alex with Quarterback Matt Ryan

“ ...The entire experience was amazing and truly a wish come true! ”

Alex is a 16-year-old boy from Tega Cay who is suffering from Rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancerous (malignant) tumor of the muscles that are attached to the bones.

When Make-A-Wish® volunteers asked Alex what his would be, he wanted nothing more than to meet his favorite Atlanta Falcons quarterback, Matt Ryan.

With the red carpets rolled out, Alex was greeted by the Atlanta Falcons cheerleaders and enjoyed spending the day with the Atlanta Falcons football players and coaches.

Alex was given a VIP tour of the entire Atlanta Falcons stadium and sat in on the team’s practice where he got to throw around with Ryan and break down a huddle. Alex and his family sat in the General Manager’s suite to watch the Falcons’ first pre-season game and he even knew the first play the team would run. The entire experience was amazing and truly a wish come true!
