Aaron Rodgers Helps 11-Year-Old Pay Tribute to Her Late Brother

Annie lost her twin brother, Jack, to cancer a few years ago. Now, the 11-year-old is determined to raise awareness and funds to combat the disease that took her sibling from her.

Here to help Annie with her laudable goal is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. As part of his web series, #ItsAaron, Rodgers is showing up to surprise and help people all over Wisconsin who have done important work with non-profit organizations.

Most recently, Rodgers surprised Annie (below), the founder of the organization Gold in September, and spent some time traveling her neighborhood with her to help raise awareness during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

If Jack was here right now, what do you think he’d want to say?” Rodgers asks in the video below.

“I think he would say ‘you just got to believe in Gold in September and everybody should just be happy in what they have,” Annie replies, “and ‘take action and do something.’”

Witness their touching interaction in the video below:
