Oakland Raiders Make Little Boy's Wish Come True

New, comments

ESPN gets a lot of flack for this, that and the other thing, but they do have a great thing going on with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Over the course of some years, little boys and girls with life-threatening medical conditions get an experience they will never forget. Recently, 10-year-old boy Jailen Cooper was able to hang out with the Oakland Raiders.

To hear about Jailen's illness and his day with the team, check out the video. Jailen was able to hang out with Nnamdi Asomugha, Darren McFadden, Mike Mitchell, Bruce Gradkowski and get some advice from Ted Tollner and Rolando McClain.

This is a great story and ESPN does a great job with Make-A-Wish Foundation for helping out kids deal with their unfortunate illnesses for at least one day where they can forget about it. Kudos to everyone for putting this thing together and keep it up.
