ESPN rolls cameras as Baylor alums’ 12-year-old son’s dream comes true
If you follow @BaylorProud on Twitter, you saw the photo above back in the spring, when the Baylor baseball team and Chi Omega teamed up to help make a wish come true for 12-year-old Jace Andrews.
Jace, the son of Baylor alumni John (BS ’92) and Julie (BA ’93) Andrews and brother of incoming freshman Justin, was born with eight congenital heart defects. He’s already had three open-heart surgeries, and he’s not out of the woods yet. His lifelong fight inspired the Make-A-Wish Foundation to take up his case and help make life a little better for the Houston-area native.
In April, Jace got to tailgate with Chi Omega and then throw out the first pitch at a Baylor baseball game; ChiO also raised money to help fund their new friend’s wish. ESPN picks up the story as Jace learns that’s just the beginning:
Three thoughts after watching that video:
1) What a story. Wow.
2) I probably should have warned you to have Kleenex ready.
3) How about that shirt Jace is wearing while being interviewed?
Sic ’em, Jace!
