Win or lose, Sanchez has proven himself more a human than yourself. Having seen a dying child brighten up by the appearance and gracious time of an athlete- REGARDLESS of whether that player is someone you root for is proof that some of these athletes don't allow fame get to their head. Perhaps you should attempt some semblance of humanity to override your obvious disdain for Mr. Sanchez. You're both a disgrace to Bears fans and a sad excuse of a human being.
Knowing Sanchez went above & beyond for this child places him in that rare category of athlete-one who cares about those who support him at all times.

I knew Aiden Binkley. He lived in my town. It's just so heartbreaking that such as sweet 11 year old had to die from such a painful thing. Everyone in my town right now is in tears. In my town, everyone cares about each other, so everyone was hysterical when they found out Aiden passed away. I can't believe it was just last year it seemed Aiden was getting better and he was in a play as the lead role. We all love you Aiden. <3
