Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was featured on ESPN’s “My Wish” series, where he granted a wish to 12-year-old Myka Eilers.
Myka was diagnosed with pulmonary stenosis which required two open heart surgeries while she was still just an infant. Eilers has been thriving despite the possibility of more surgeries and complications down the line. “I won’t stop,” Eilers said. “And I’ll always push myself.”
The Chiefs are Eilers’ favorite NFL team. Now she quarterbacks her flag football team and has a dream to be the first woman to play in the NFL. For her wish, Eilers wanted to meet her favorite team’s quarterback. Mahomes, of course, obliged. “He’s like my favorite player on the Chiefs,” Eilers said of Mahomes. “And I want to become a quarterback in the NFL.”
This is a sweet and fun video.
