Knightstown, IN -- 74-year-old U.S. Navy veteran Danny Webber (above with Heritage House activity director Myranda Hartwell) has never seen Lucas Oil Stadium. Sunday he will. And it will be the last time he does. “This one will be very special …” Webber said in a Thursday phone interview. “… because this will be the last one I ever see.”
Webber's prostate cancer spread to his lungs and now to his spleen.
He’s a resident at Heritage House, a senior community in Greensburg, Ind. A new program, Heritage House Dreams, has made it possible for Webber’s last wish to be granted. A Heritage House friend donated the Colts tickets.
When the Colts learned of Webber’s story Friday, they were quick to give the dying fan a seat upgrade. Instead of sitting high above in section 531, Webber and his two friends will enjoy pregame sideline access as well as VIP admittance to the club lounge. When the game starts, they will have one of the best views from section 135, seats 5-7, in the handicap accessible area.
So what does the man who says 'any day I can put my feet on the ground' is a good start have to say about the game (for which he will paint his face blue and white)?
“Oh boy,” he said. “It’s a highlight of my life.”
