Make-A-Wish Foundation grants young fan’s wish to meet Aaron Rodgers

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A young Packers fan from Pennsylvania received a special treat.

Charlie was diagnosed with a rare lung disease at an early age. 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation heard Charlie's story and his love for the green and gold. 

They arranged a meet-and-greet with Aaron Rodgers.

Charlie and his family were also granted a special tour of Lambeau Field.

"For him to have the chance to have up close and personal time and actually meet the players and get the tour of Lambeau is amazing," said Charlie's mother, Shari Cissel. "Obviously, being a triplet, he is very close with his brother and sister, so the fact that his brother and sister got to come along and Make-A-Wish brought our whole family is just an amazing experience."

The visit didn't end there. Charlie will be on the field Sunday for player warm-ups.
