A touching story



sanchez.A few weeks ago, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez met Aiden Binkley, an 11-year-old boy with a rare form of cancer who had two wishes. One was that his brothers would stay healthy. The other was to meet Sanchez. The two did meet at the Jets training facility in mid December and, after the Jets beat the Steelers, Sanchez sent Aiden the game ball. The two then became text buddies and a just a couple of weeks ago, Sanchez called the Aiden's parents and asked, "Can I come over?'' When Sanchez arrived, Aiden was sleeping, but Sanchez stayed until he woke up and then two spent the afternoon talking to each other. Sadly, Aiden died earlier this week.
