Setting aside rivalries for a very special day

Tom and his donor’s niece, Jerzie

At Miller Park recently, the rivalry between the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs was put aside to bring two families together for an incredible day!

Tom underwent a heart transplant at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center last August. After the transplant, Tom wrote to the donor’s family and learned they were Cubs fans.

Thanks to the Brewers, Tom was invited to Miller Park to meet the family of his donor for the first time. He and his donor’s niece, Jerzie, even threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Brewers Manager Craig Counsell and Cubs Manager Joe Maddon.
