VERONA — Former UW–Platteville women’s basketball coach and now Associate Athletic Director Megan Wilson and her daughter Palmer were in attendance Saturday, June 22 at the AmFam Championship in Verona.
Palmer, 7, is battling stage 3 alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma — a type of rare cancer in the soft tissue. Doctors started a 43-week treatment plan late last summer, including chemotherapy. Palmer and her entire family were in attendance Saturday at University Ridge Golf Course to meet one of their favorites in the sports world, Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre.
Palmer, her mother Megan, father Josh and twin brothers Aiden and Brody had a chance to shake hands and take their picture with the Green Bay Packer legend. Jack Salzwedel from the AmFam Championship helped NBC15 sports director Mike Jacques get the Wilsons to meet Favre. Palmer is nearing the end of her 43-week treatment plan with just four weeks remaining.
