Local Boy with Cancer To Meet Favorite Wrestler

By Emily Girsch.
Dreams came true for a local boy today.

A five-year-old named Jacob has stage three cancer.

It's always been his dream to meet pro wrestler Roman Reigns, and Thursday night he received news that he would.

"I'm just happy for him. I couldn't wait to tell him," said Jacob's father Hassan Green.

As part of national children's charity, Kids Wish Network, Jacob was escorted by limo to Zona's on Hawley Street for a free meal, a special cake, and an announcement that he would get to meet Roman Reigns at a WWE Live Event at Madison Square Garden this spring.
