It’s very often that you see two bitter rivals setting aside their differences to work together on something, but that is the exact story we heard out of the Big Ten. Former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr’s five-year-old grandson, Chad, was recently placed on hospice care as he is slowly losing his battle with a rare form of brain cancer.
He will likely not get to see Christmas this year, so the Michigan and Ohio State coaching staffs came together to help ease Chad’s pain. They all went to his house and decorated it in Christmas lights to try and lift his spirits.
Chad’s mother, Tammi, took to Facebook on Wednesday to thank the coaches and posted a picture of her house as well.
“Special thanks to the michigan men’s basketball coaches and staff and the Ohio state men’s basketball team’s coaches and staff. They came together to do this for chad. Amazing!!!! Love and thanks to you all!! Bigger than the rivalry!!”
What a great thing to do for the kid. Hopefully this makes his last few days a little more enjoyable.
