Making his day

Posted Dec 29, 2017

Coming to practice, and the game on Sunday, made the day of a Make-a-Wish recipient.

“Coming here made my day, let alone if I met any of them.”

That was the sentiment pure and simple from Michael Harms after he met several Steelers players, including his favorite, Chris Boswell.

Harms, who is from Colorado Springs, Colorado, was visiting Steelers practice at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, and will be at Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, as a guest of the team through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Harms, 18, suffers from Hodgkin’s disease, chose coming to see the Steelers because he has been a fan since the team won Super Bowl XL.

“I have never seen a regular season football game,” said Harms. “It’s always something I wanted. It’s hard to put into words. You never think it will happen. To see them this close, a more personal look, I am definitely in awe.”
