On Saturday, the 2019 week-long "My Wish" series on ESPN kicked off and featured George Taylor, a high school football player who is battling Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Taylor wrote former Penn State running back and NFL Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkley about his struggles. As a result, Taylor spent a day with the New York Giants with Barkley as his host. Hold on, it's getting dusty in here...

Barkley has become one of the most endearing athletes in any sport and he continues to amaze on and off the field. For Taylor, it was a chance to meet his idol who inspires him in the fight of his life. As for everyone else, it's Taylor and all of the children featured in the My Wish segments that are the true inspirations.

Chirs Connelly has hosted the program since 2006 through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The features, shown for one week in the summer, highlight children facing a critical illness getting a chance to meet a hero or participate in a special event.
