Tim Tebow visits Valley to grant wish for teen suffering from disease

SCOTTSDALE - Though he's fallen off the football radar, Tim Tebow is using his fame and faith in life-changing ways.

The football player has been hard at work making dreams come true for children around the country, some suffering from serious and life-threatening illnesses.

Tebow and 18-year-old Haley recently met in Scottsdale to give Haley a full princess experience at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort.

The teen, suffering from a connective tissue and joint disease, was given full royalty treatment complete with fancy meals and time spent with Tebow, a chance to throw the first pitch at an Arizona Diamondbacks game and meet the team, aerial tours of the state, limousine rides and more.

According to the Tim Tebow Foundation, Haley said “Tim is my role model and I admire how he makes a stand for Christ no matter what. I sometimes wondered if anything good would ever come from my conditions until now when I have the chance to meet someone I admire so much.”

The football player is now dedicated to giving special experiences and granting "WI5Hes" (paying homage to his number-15 football career) to sick kids through his foundation.
