Great Stafford story if you missed it

I've seen various versions of this story today and it's well worth the read.

Former Georgia and current Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made a heartwarming gesture toward a little boy at a fundraising auction for the children's hospital at the University of Michigan over the weekend. He paid about $15,000 for a travel package to send the family to the Detroit-Chicago game on Monday Night Football this fall. It's a really sweet story.

The version of the story recounted by the little boy's mother is even more moving.
