Make-A-Wish Monday: Dotting the 'i' for Ohio State


It's Make-A-Wish Monday, and we were joined by 9-year-old Aidan Arquette!

Aidan got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with The Ohio State University.

Aidan loves anything involving sports, especially football and baseball, but his level of activity has been limited due to his heart condition.

He was born with a condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome. His heart has restricted blood flow, and he has gone through multiple surgeries to help remediate the issues.

Aidan's dad says there isn't a day that has gone by that his son hasn't discussed what his wish should be. Aidan is a huge fan of The Ohio State University football team and follows all their traditions.

Since he will never be able to play football himself, he hoped to meet the team, become an honorary player, and hopefully even "dot the I" with the band!

This past year, Aidan traveled to Columbus, Ohio to meet the team and take part in all their traditions as an honorary player at their biggest, rivalry game of the year -Ohio State vs. University of Michigan!

He was even able to "dot the i" during the marching band's practice the evening before game day.
