    Hey guys, I know a lot of you are Browns fans. And I thought you would like this story. On this other site [I will not tell you what the site is called, cause it is another football forum] there is the member, named Crakburn. He is suffering from Pancreatic Cancer and the doctors told him and his family that he has just a few days to live. Well, we didn't know about this, until his wife, Tracy, came onto the forum and posted this news. This guy, Crakburn isn't any ordinary poster. He is a Moderator of the Browns section and he has been a great part of that site.

    So, a lot of members on that site were broken. He is a good friend, to quite a few members on that site and they decided they wanted to make a difference. So, they made a thread on that site called "Making a Wish Come True" Everyone participated, by e-mailing the Browns organizations, other news stations, ESPN, a foundation for Cancer of the Browns, NFL Network, etc...hoping for something.

    They researched some things on Crakburn and came up with his favorite players and what part of Ohio he lived in. (they looked at all of his posts to find these) Then, a couple of members got Tracy's phone number and contacted her about this. She approved and said it would be great, but Crakburn doesn't know about it...

    The Browns contacted back another member about something and they shared it with Tracy. Tracy set up a time with the Browns organization that was a good time for Joe Thomas to come meet with Crakburn. That is right, Joe Thomas is coming to Crakburn's hospital and spending a day with him.

    I thought that was a pretty cool story and I am glad to be a small part of it.

    Wow that's a great story! Sucks that he has cancer though but what a great thing for everyone to do to at least make it an easier passing.
