Cancer survivor has wicked awesome wish granted

Cancer survivor has wicked awesome wish granted

Posted: Updated:

A local organization is helping to make dreams come true in a big, bold way. And they are getting a little help from the Lions.

This is the third wicked awesome wish that's been granted this season. The first one went to a 9-year old with terminal cancer. Another went to a young boy who lost his mother to cancer and on Sunday a cancer survivor.

Tina Tersigni was diagnosed with breast cancer last March. She's now in remission.

"I can't believe I won. I never win anything, " added Tersigni.

Tersigni and her husband Frank got two front row tickets to Sunday's Lions verse the Dallas Cowboys game right by the Lions end zone. They also got to go on the field before the game. This was the couple's first game ever so it's going to be hard to top.

It's all possible through Lady Jane's Wicked Awesome Wishes Foundation and Lion's Captain Stephen Tulloch.

Chad Johnson, owner of Lady Janes says, " I lost my mom to cancer 6 years ago and my dad last year. It's something that means a lot to my family and the people around me so we are going to continue to do it and make it bigger and bigger."

The effort is raising awareness about cancer and at the same time helping those touched by it do something they never thought they could accomplish. It's making memories and wishes come true. The smiles say it all.

Tersigni says, "It does feel really good after the last year what I went through. I'm very excited. I'm very happy.

"She is my idol and anyone else who is going through this. She an amazing, strong person," added Frank, Tina's husband.

Organizers still have plenty more wishes to grant at Ford Field during home games. They are looking for more nominations. You can find a link to Wicked Awesome Wishes here.
