We’ve always thought Josh Allen was a good guy – and this story – this cements that for us!!

The big-hearted quarterback made a special Facetime call with a sick little boy and what a special gift that was.


Seven-year-old Noah loves football – his grandmother says he lives and breathes the sport. Obviously he loves Josh Allen – I mean, they both play the game AND they both wear number 17!!



Noah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in June. He’s going through a very difficult time and is currently a patient at Oishei Children’s Hospital. Sandra Marks Nagel said her grandson was going through a rough round of treatment and the special call was a big win.” It fills my heart with joy that he took time out of his busy schedule to make a 7 year old’s day while going though a rough round of treatment.”

Meeting his hero – even virtually – was amazing for Noah. Josh asked him some questions like what position he plays (safety). He also invited Noah to any game of his choice – either this year or next year. Josh told Noah whenever he feels good enough – he will host the little guy personally.

What an amazing thing to do!!  Thank you Josh – for what you do on – and off the field!!!

We are praying for you Noah!! Sending love and prayers to you and your family.
