A lifelong baseball fan experienced the game of a lifetime with his son.

“He's a huge Cubs fan. He loves the Cubs,” says daughter-in-law Stacy Lundahl.

Sixty-year-old Tim Lundahl passed his love of the Chicago Cubs on to his son, Josh.

“He raised me right as a Cub fan,” jokes Josh Lundahl.

The family had tickets to go to a game this summer, but plans change. Tim is battling liver cancer and is receiving treatment from HCI Hospice Care Services.

“They kind of think I might not be around by July, so it was extra special awesomeness,” says Tim Lundahl.

Lauren DeVan and the team at HCI Hospice Care Services found two tickets to Saturday’s Cubs game against the Cardinals.

While he’s watched from the stands countless times, for the first time, he got to step foot on Wrigley Field.

“This is great. It's been a special week for both of them and it's something they'll remember forever,” Stacy.

“It was a great weekend to spend with my Dad,” says Josh.

Tim got a little choked up when he said the weekend lived up to its billing.

“It's my dream game of a lifetime,” he says.

A weekend of watching baseball with son at Wrigley and making memories that neither one will forget.
