I am writing this letter about an incredible experience at the Bears-Bengals game.
My mother was diagnosed with colon and liver cancer two years ago. She had surgery and many rounds of chemotherapy. Her cancer returned last year. She had not been to a Bears game since her diagnosis.
The game itself was great, but what happened after the game was priceless. We went down to the wall so my son could give Charles "Peanut" Tillman a high-five. He came by and gave my son something even better ... one of his game-worn gloves. My mom was in tears.
The sight of her tears of joy and my son’s excitement capped a day I will never forget and always treasure.
Tillman is more than just a fantastic football player; he is a wonderful man, and will forever have a special place in the hearts of the Quigg family.
