Care Team Helps Man with FTD Celebrate His Life

Auburn wish 1

An Alabama man who is living with FTD and in hospice care recently had his wish to attend an Auburn University football game granted, as covered by CBS News.

Bill Roberts was diagnosed with FTD in 2013 and when his care team asked how they could help celebrate his life, he chose to go watch Auburn take on Samford University. On November 23, Bill’s wish came true when he was able to attend a game with his wife, Debra.

“That’s something he just wanted to do,” Debra says in the video. “So, when he went on hospice, I thought, well, that would be the perfect wish.”

CBS News covered Bill’s time at the game, where he had a front row seat on the sideline and got to meet the players and coaching staff. You can watch the full segment on the CBS42 website.
