Jack Hoffman meets with president

Posted: 04/30/13 08:41

Jack Hoffman's 69-yard touchdown run in the Nebraska Huskers Spring Game gained the 7-year-old national attention...and has led to a visit with the president, in the Oval Office. Jack suffers from pediatric brain cancer and has used his fame to raise awareness about the disease. His father, Andy Hoffman, says it was an incredible event to meet President Obama and spend about 15 minutes in the Oval Office with him. Hoffman, says the visit to the White House will go well beyond the thrill of meeting the president. Senator Fischer was instrumental in getting Jack the visit with the president. Fischer won unanimous support earlier in the United States Senate to designate Jack's birthday, September 26th, National Pediatric Brain Cancer Awareness Day.
