Copy-Madison teenager's dream comes true to meet Russell Wilson

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- A Madison teenager's wish came true Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Ryan Hamel and his family met Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, before the Seahawks took on the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon.

Ryan has kidney failure and wanted more than anything to meet his idol. Thursday's Child of Wisconsin saw our story on 27 News about Ryan and contacted us saying they wanted to help. They put Ryan and his family up in hotel rooms Saturday night and gave him $150 in souvenir money. 

A Seahawks representative called Ryan's aunt on Thursday to tell her this would happen, but Ryan was surprised with the news just before the game when he met Wilson and took pictures with him. 

The Hamel family wants to thank everyone who helped make this big day happen. Ryan is still awaiting a kidney transplant.
