Sidney Crosby makes cancer patients dream come true
BY BRETT THOMAS WILLS
Recently a thirteen-year-old Windsor, ON native was granted a wish by the Make-A-Wish foundation. Logan Ferris, 13 wanted to meet Sidney Crosby from the age of five and has been his hero "for as long as I can remember".
Ferris who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 1 on March 8, was granted his wish on March 8, twelve years later. Make a Wish and the Penguins organization flew Logan and the rest of his family to Pittsburgh where they signed the youngster to a one-day contract.
Penguins General Manager Ron Hextall welcomed Logan and the rest of his family during a press conference where it was announced that along with the teen, his siblings were also signed to one-day contracts.
The thirteen-year-old participated in morning practice and spent time with Crosby and the rest of his family at the rink.
Ferris whose cancer is in remission was a bit nervous that Crosby would be serious but realized he's lots of fun and had lots of conversation.
Logan and his family wanted to make sure they thanked the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Pittsburgh Penguins organization and to let people know to donate to them to allow for moments like this to continue to occur.
