A dream come true for a tough kid

November 16, 2012 by Teresa Varley

Life has not been easy for 18-year old Justin Chadwick, who was born with cystic fibrosis and had to battle the effects of it all through his life.

On top of that, Chadwick was diagnosed with cancer last summer, and showed amazing strength getting through it.

Now that he is in remission, he had the pleasure of having a longtime wish come true when he attended Steelers practice on Friday, meeting all of the players, and will be at the Steelers-Ravens game on Sunday night.

“It’s pretty awesome,” said his mother Paula Chadwick. “It’s a great opportunity for the whole family, especially Justin. It’s great to see him enjoy this. He deals a lot with his health and doesn’t get to do things other kids can do. It’s great he can do something like this that is a dream of his.”
