The Boston Celtics Make Warrior Wishes Come True!
It was a fun day filled with Warrior Wishes coming true in Boston. Tonight my Dad honored heroes at the Red Sox & Celtics Games. So while Army Sgt Frank Ellis is across town enjoying the Red Sox Game (see the full story here), Army SPC Tommy McNeil & Tyler Corcoran were enjoying the Celtics game!
ARMY SPC TOMMY MCNEIL
Tommy McNeil served in the Army from September 2008 until he was diagnosed with lymphoma and retired in February 2013. McNeil is still battling cancer and enduring chemotherapy treatments.
Tommy said he had an “incredible experience at the game, one that he will never forget!”
On April 15th 2013, Tyler & his familys’ lives changed forever! Explosions ripped through the downtown streets of Boston as the Corcoran family was watching a family member run in the Boston Marathon. Tyler’s sister, Sydney, suffered a severed femoral artery, while him mom, Celeste, lost both legs in the attack. Tyler has been by there side since day one & has helped motivate them to keep going.
Operation Warrior Wishes wass honored to show our appreciation to Tyler Corcoran & SPC Tommy Mcneil at the Boston Celtics game tonight! The Celtics won the game on a last minute 3 pointer. It was an incredible night full of memories!
We would like to thank Whole Foods Market, Symphony, for providing a pregame meal & theBoston Celtics providing 4th row tickets behind the Celtics bench & helping us make #WarriorWishes come true at game 15 of our #BattlefieldsToBallfields Mission!
My dad plans on getting a good night sleep before heading back out to Fenway Park in the morning to host a Gold Star family at the Red Sox game in the morning.
