Once a month, Kobe must have a blood transfusion to prevent him from having mini strokes. After seeing the impact his illness had on him, social workers referred Kobe to Make-A-Wish. Wish mom, Zandra reflected, “Kobe has always loved the Green Bay Packers, he has said numerous times over the years, his dream was to watch a Green Bay Packers game and to meet his favorite player, Alan Rogers.” He was so excited when the wish granters revealed that his long time wish, was coming true.
Kobe recalled, “I had the BEST...WISH....EVER! I got to meet my favorite football team of all time. I ‘ve always wanted to go to a Green Bay Packers game...always!” This is an experience that Kobe and his family will remember for a long time, watching his favorite team, meeting them but also playing football with his favorite player will go down as one of his most memorable moments.
