In November of 2012, JT and the boys welcomed Nathaniel Bone to Stamford Bridge through the Make-A-Wish program. Nathaniel, now an 18 year old member of the Music City Blues, is feeling well enough to head to college at Chattanooga even though he’s still undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. He met the entire team, (including Roman!) and watched the match from the players’ family suite in the corner where the Shed End meets the West Stand. It was a great day out in London.

Let’s wish him luck!
