CHICAGO — 15-year-old Connor Wilson arrived at O-Hare Saturday as part of an incredible surprise by the Bears.

Earlier in the week, Advocate Children’s Hospital and the Bears arrived at Wilson’s home with a simple request; help us beat the Rams in Los Angeles.

The surprise took a little while to sink in for the diehard Bears fan.

Life has been difficult for the family after Wilson’s mother, Barb, took him to the doctor with a cough. The cough turned out to be Lymphoma.

His family is beyond grateful for the generosity of the Bears.

“It allows us to forget and let him be a kid again,” his mother said. “And gives us two days to enjoy ourselves.”
