Roethlisberger Spends Day With Cancer Survivor

Almost every child’s dream is to meet the starting quarterback of their favorite team.

Nine year old Carson Boyle got to do just that.

As part of the Make-A-Wish program, Boyle and his family spent the day hanging out with the Pittsburgh Steelers. That including meeting his favorite player, Ben Roethlisberger.

In a terrific article by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Carson got to talk with Big Ben, receive a pair of autographed cleats, and score tickets to last Sunday’s Cleveland Browns game ,where Roethlisberger came off the bench to throw three touchdowns in a 30-9 Steelers’ win.


Carson is currently in remission after battling, according to Fowler, a “rare form of cancer,” and one that carries a risk of resurfacing in the next couple years. A well deserved, happy moment for Carson to get to meet his idol.

Through moments like this and his well-known donations to K-9 units in police departments, Roethlisberger continues to make a positive impact in the community.
