Jordan Trunfio, 17, battling brain cancer, surprised by Super Bowl tickets
A Fairfax County teen, battling brain cancer, received a super surprise Thursday night - a trip to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
Jordan Trunfio, 17, a senior at West Springfield High School, thought he had injured his elbow playing football. It was not an injury, but several tumors in his brain affecting the rest of his body. The cancer forced him to undergo radiation and chemo.
Tonight, he thought he he was going to yet another fundraiser to cover his medical bills. But his friends and neighbors were there for another reason.
A local Domino's Pizza restaurant and ESPN 980 got the tickets for Jordan and his father.
ABC7's Hatzel Vela was there when Jordan got his big surprise.
