Anna’s story is a great one about life and sports.  She is a young 13-year-old from Horicon, Wisconsin in the Midwest. She had a life-threatening heart condition requiring a heart transplant.  Early this year, she got the heart transplant. On ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown (11 a.m.-1 p.m. ET), Anna’s wish to meet the Green Bay Packers will be featured. Anna attended a Packers practice in August through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She received all-pro treatment from the Packers–Anna got her own locker and jersey, hit the field with the team and Coach McCarthy, posed for a “Lambeau Leap” and enjoyed lunch with her favorite players, Al Harris and Aaron Rodgers. Emmy Award-winning reporter Connelly, who hosts the annual SportsCenter “My Wish” series, interviews Anna and her family about her courageous recovery from a life-threatening heart condition and her adoration of the Packers.
