Columbia teen battling brain cancer granted wish to attend Clemson v Alabama game
A Midlands senior battling brain cancer was granted the ultimate wish to attend a college football championship game thanks to a local non-profit organization.
For the past three years Logan Burr has watched the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers go toe-to-toe for the Championship title, however this year he will be watching the game live-in-action instead of on the big screen.
Burr, who has been battling a malignant brain tumor, will be packing his bags to travel to California for the 2019 College Football National Championship game.
The Alabama fan was granted his wish by a local non-profit, Carolina Sunshine for Children, which grants wishes to South Carolina children with life-threatening illnesses.
"We are very excited to be granting this wish for a very deserving young man. We truly hope he has a wonderful time with his family and enjoys the game!" says Ron Asbill, Chairman of the Board for Carolina Sunshine for Children.
Aside from the game, Logan and his family plan to spend some time outdoors. Logan and his father intend on spending some time playing golf which is one of their favorite activities.
He also hopes to meet Nick Saban.
Carolina Sunshine for Children is based in Columbia and was founded in 1983.
All monies collected are donated to fulfilling a child's wish. All the administrative and operating costs affiliated with a wish are paid for by the Board of Directors.
