Jack Hoffman, age 7, made his college football appearance during the Nebraska spring game on April 6. He scored his 69-yard touchdown amid a grueling round of chemotherapy to treat two brain tumors.
Monday might have been Jack's second best day ever, as he got to meet with President Obama at the White House.
"I thought it was awesome," Jack said.
Along for the visit was Rex Burkhead, a former Nebraska running back and a sixth-round draft pick by the Cincinnati Bengals. He has been a major booster of the Team Jack cause.
Jack is the inspiration behind Team Jack Foundation. Started by Jack's family and friends, the foundation funds research of cancer genetic mutations. The Team Jack Foundation website "About " section reads:
"...(T)reating those mutations with chemically engineered smart drugs is a priority. The result will be kinder, gentler, and more successful treatment protocols. In addition to funding research to develop effective drug therapies, the Team Jack Foundation will also take a close look at helping fund the neurosurgery aspects of brain tumor treatment."
