Ben Lepper is an amateur musician from Massachusetts.  Sadly, he has also been battling leukemia since 2019.

Because of his battle with the deadly disease, he was recently granted a "wish" by Make-A-Wish.  He was given the opportunity to tour Gillette Stadium.  He even had a chance to meet New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

During his visit, he even got "drafted" by the New England Patriots and was given a special jersey by Robert Kraft.

The Patriots just posted about it on their Tiktok account:

@patriots Robert Kraft fulfilled Ben Lepper’s Make a Wish this week and it has us in our feels #patriots #makeawish #nfldraft ♬ original sound - New England Patriots

The video hits us in the feels, too!  We sincerely hope that Ben makes a speedy recovery.

In a social media post from 2019, he explained his battle.  He said, in part:

On the night of March 15th, 2019, my world changed forever.  I was diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia).  For those who don't know, leukemia is a type of blood cancer.  The type I have is caused by an error in my bone marrow which created an influx of white blood cells.  This is not good.  With all that being said, it is treatable and it is curable, especially where I am. It is going to be a long and hard journey, but according to my doctors, I should be okay.

You can check out some of the music that Ben made on his Soundcloud account.
