The Family of the ‘Dutch Destroyer’ is Coming to an NDSU Game
Lukas Kusters, also known as the 'Dutch Destroyer,' was able to meet Carson Wentz through the 'Make-A-Wish Foundation.' Now, Kusters' family will be coming to North Dakota next week.
By now, you've already either seen or read the incredible story about Lukas Kusters, an 8-year old boy from Wilmington, Delaware, suffering from stomach cancer. His wish was to meet Carson Wentz so he could thank him for sending him a video, telling him to get well.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation set up the meeting with Wentz. Lukas was able to spend time with Wentz, as well as the rest of the team. Just two weeks after the meeting, Lukas lost his battle with cancer and was buried in a Carson Wentz jersey. Wentz now wears a bracelet given to him by Lukas that has 'Dutch Destroyer' embroidered on it. Carson Wentz has played each game this season while wearing the bracelet on his wrist.
Wentz met with the Kusters again after the Philadelphia Eagles' Monday Night Football victory over the Washington Redskins. He gifted the game ball to their youngest son.
Next Saturday, the Kusters will come to Wentz's alma mater, North Dakota State to watch them play against South Dakota on November 11th at the Fargodome.
