A Rhode Island track and field star who has been fighting cancer for the last five months is heading to Houston to watch the New England Patriots square off with the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl.
Bobby Colantonio’s wish of attending the big game was granted by the A Wish Come True organization.
The 18-year-old national high school hammer champion was diagnosed with metastatic Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare bone cancer, in August, just as he was getting ready for his first collegiate season and starting classes at the University of Alabama.
One of Bobby's favorite things that helped him get through his chemo treatments ... Watching the Pats play football on TV.
Props to the nurses, doctors, caregivers at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence for reaching out to the folks at A Wish Come True and make Bobby's WISH come true.
Go Bobby and Go Pats!!
