Presli Collins had the first date of her life recently, and it was with none other than Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
Presli suffers from neurofibromatosis, which forms tumors in the brain, spinal cord and under the skin and has undergone numerous excruciating surgeries. Affecting 1 in every 3000 people, Neurofibromatosis can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and excruciating and disabling pain.
When Tim heard about this young superfan’s condition, he made arrangements to take her as his date to the Cartoon Network’s Hall Of Game Awards. This was done in collaboration with Tebow’s W15H Program which “exists to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need,” according to the website.
During the evening, they rubbed elbows with celebrities, had a few laughs and even took a lovely stroll to the chocolate fountain.
Presli walked away with an autographed football, a huge smile and a pretty big compliment.
“Thank you for being an amazing date,” Tebow told Presli.
