14-Year-Old Bears Fan Wants to Kill Tumor, Calls it 'Aaron Rodgers'


Football is life.

A young Bears fan is using the quarterback for his hated rivals as motivation. Miguel Reyes, a 14-year-old Bears fanatic, has a brain tumor that causes him headaches, among other problems. It was the idea of Reyes' former teacher Peg Kelly to give the tumor a name.

"I said, 'You need to name that tumor so we can kill it,'" Kelly told The Elkhart Truth. "You know what he named it? Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers. What a stinker!"

If you haven't noticed, Kelly is a die-hard Packers fan, hence the stinker comment. On the other hand, she's all for what ever motivation Reyes needs to beat kill his tumor. She even got him a German shepherd last year, hoping he could help detect Reyes' seizures and prevent him from bumping into things. The dog's name? Devin Hester

If you want to contribute, Reyes has a GoFundMe page to raise money to properly train Hester.
