PLATTE-Seven-year-old Tennyson Erickson, of Platte, will be featured on the third of five ESPN "My Wish" segments at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Erickson, who has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, spent two days with Larry Fitzgerald, a wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, playing catch, going through media day and attending mini-camp with the Cardinals.

"It was an honor hosting my friend Tennyson Erickson at the Cardinals facility the last two days," Fitzgerald tweeted on June 12.
ESPN teamed up with Make-A-Wish to fulfill sports-themed wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Erickson's segment will re-air multiple times during other editions of SportsCenter, and will be included in a one hour SportsCenter special featuring all five segments of the 2018 "My Wish" Series at 1 p.m. on Aug. 1.

Erickson likes football and baseball and is a big fan of the Arizona Cardinals. He was diagnosed with leukemia in Feb. 2017 and is currently in the second year of a five-year treatment plan.
