Make a Wish Foundation Grants West Richland Teen a Wish Come True

Posted: Updated:

WEST RICHLAND, Wash. -  A 17-year-old diagnosed with cancer is being granted a wish come true by the Make a Wish Foundation.

This year, the local chapter is granting about 300 wishes. 

One of those wishes is going to Spencer Anderson, whose wish to be a Seattle Seahawks' broacaster will become a reality for one weekend.

The Alaska and Washington Make a Wish Foundation is sending him and his family to Seattle for the weekend, where he'll get to interview a Seahawks player, hang out with longtime Seattle sportscaster Tony Ventrella and then attend the big game on Sunday night.

Anderson was diagnosed in March with the potentially life threatening disease, lymphoma cancer. 

"This is one thing that Make a Wish has really helped out with and getting me the opportunity to get some real experience. So to be able to go and actually have that now is a dream come true," said Anderson.

Spencer will get to interview a seahawks player - hang out with longtime seattle sportscaster tony ventrella - and then attend the big game on sunday night.

As of last month, Anderson is now cancer free.
