YouTube/Wishes & More Children's Wish Foundation

Ever since Duck Dynasty become a huge hit, the name Willie Robertson is now a household name. 

The family-friendly show and the Robertson’s hilarious antics have etched themselves into TV history and into America’s hearts.

It seems no one is a bigger fan of the show and Willie’s than an 18-year-old boy named Matthew.

He must have watched every episode 10 times!” his mother told Quad Community Press.

Thanks to Wishes & More, Matthew’s biggest wish to meet the star of his favorite show was granted. Wishes & More is a Minnesota-based organization “that grants wishes, enhancing the life of children fighting a terminal or life-threatening condition by providing extraordinary experiences.”

Matthew was diagnosed with a brain disorder called Leukodystrophy, which can cause seizures, blindness, convulsions, personality changes, motor disturbances, and paralysis.

Wishes & More arranged for  Matthew’s whole family to attend a sermon at a nearby church given by Willie Robertson. After church they were able to spend time with the bearded CEO of Duck Commander.

They talked sports, family, TV, and Willie prayed with the family before leaving to head back to Louisiana.

Willie took his trademark bandana off his head to give to the young fan, which held tightly in his hands. Watch the video of their incredible meeting below.
