My name is Eric Montgomery and I want to let people know that TNA Wrestling DOES have a heart when it comes to young fans like my 15 year old nephew because they are going out of their way to put a smile on my nephew’s face who suffers from a deadly disease called Cystic Fibrosis. He also suffers from Fibromyalgia and has a few other issues wrong with him where he spends 50% of the year in and out of hospitals.
Well my nephew Brandon was suppose to go with me this Thursday Night to the IMPACT Tapings at Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky but all that changed Sunday Night when he was rushed to the hospital for shortness of breath, was in severe pain where he was basically crying for 3 hours straight and his dad forced him to go to get treatment and they believe my nephew has pneumonia again.
When I heard what happened, I told him that it sucks he has to miss the show BUT he needs to get better because his health is far more important than any wrestling show!
Well I made a call to the TNA Offices yesterday morning, where I left a voice mail for a lady named Claire and she called me back today to let me know that she and TNA Wrestling are putting together a “Get Well Soon” Care Package for my nephew that I will be picking up on Thursday Night!
So to anyone who wants to bash, bury TNA Wrestling for being a crappy promotion, etc… I am sorry to say but their not because they didn’t have to go out of their way for my nephew when they don’t know me or my nephew personally but they are because they have a heart and I would not bs anyone about my nephew having cystic fibrosis, etc…
Brandon is not only my nephew, He is my best friend, my wrestling buddy and one of the main reasons why I am doing what ever I can to better myself because he looks up to me and I will do what ever I can and go out of my way to see him happy!
Thank you everyone for reading,
