Kelly, an eighteen-year-old athlete and avid soccer player from Schenectady wished to meet soccer star David Beckham. Kelly and her family traveled to Los Angeles to meet David Beckham and the LA Galaxy.
Kelly O’Brien had one wish, and it was a winner.
Now 18, the Schenectady girl was an athlete and soccer player at Mohonasen High School, and also was battling leukemia. She had no difficulty choosing a wish that scored with her—to meet soccer star David Beckham.
Kelly and her family traveled to Los Angeles and had the opportunity meet Beckham and the LA Galaxy team.
The next day, Kelly was Beckham’s escort onto the field during player introductions. After the LA Galaxy won, Beckham stopped to see Kelly and gave her his jersey.
Kelly said the trip was an “amazing and happy” experience, especially the chance to enjoy a special time with her dad. It was a trip that she “will never forget!”
