Tim Tebow has fulfilled the dream of Haley Burke, a girl who was diagnosed with life-threatening illness Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome at an early of 15 years old. Burke was reportedly one of recipients of Tebow's W15H Wednesday campaign. W15H is pronounced as "wish." The number 15 in the middle is a tribute to Tebow's jersey number, which he worn back in college and when he played for the Denver Broncos.

According to People Magazine, Burke started getting in touch with Tim Tebow Foundation in hopes that she will be able to FaceTime the former National Football League (NFL) former quarterback, but she got more than what she asked for. Burke didn't need to make FaceTime calls to get a glimpse of the 27-year-old quarterback-turned-college football analyst because Tebow's foundation has flown Burke and her family and gave them a one-of-a-kind experience with exciting activities lined up for them, which includes limousine ride, hotel stay, helicopter ride, and a dinner with Tebow.

"They're amazing," Tebow told People. "The entire time I was with them, I was so inspired by their strength and courage in facing every day and every struggle with a positive attitude," Tebow added.

Burke was extremely delighted of the opportunity and shared snaps of her get-together with Tebow on Twitter.

Tebow was equally happy of being able to make someone smile.

Tebow said that that W15H campaign helps him to keep a great perspective in life. He said he hopes to bring a positive impact on the children but he walks out rewarded with a lasting impact on his life.

Each recipient of the W15H campaign receives a gift package which includes W15H luggage, W15H T-shirts, Nike duffel bag, a copy of Tim's book "Through My Eyes," Florida Gators: 2008 National Championship book, and a personalised bible among many others, as stated on the official website of Tim Tebow Foundation. W15H campaign is just one of Tim Tebow Foundation's outreach programs, which also include Team Tebow, Timmy's Playrooms, Tebow CURE Hospital, and Orphan Care.
