SEATTLE — A loyal University of Washington Huskies fan had a dying wish granted this week — to meet her favorite football player.
Trina Christiani’s health is declining as she battles brain cancer, but on Wednesday, she got an unexpected surprise.
Trina has been a huge fan of UW running back Myles Gaskin. The two grew up in the Edmonds-Lynnwood area, so he and Huskies punter Race Porter stopped by her home as a surprise.
Afterward, Trina’s husband posted on Facebook thanking Poter and Gaskin. He said, in part, “you did so much more than come over and eat pizza with a bunch of football fans. You brought us together to heal our souls.”
