On Friday night, the Detroit Lions tweeted out a short video that caught our attention. The video shows the reaction of a Lions fan named Ryan after finding out that he and 12 of his loved ones have been invited to the October 28th matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Ryan was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 appendix cancer.
