Sick Youngster's Wish Is Granted by Donahue

January 01, 1986

Promised Rose Bowl tix to extremely ill son. Need 3. Can you help? UCLA football Coach Terry Donahue did.

Donahue, contacted by a representative from the Make-A-Wish Foundation who saw the above classified ad in The Times last week, sent four Rose Bowl tickets to 10-year-old Brice Dickerson of Fountain Valley.

"(Donahue) went out of his way and he doesn't even know us from Adam," said Michael Dickerson, Brice's father. "It's a very special thing. He got us four tickets on the 50-yard line. He didn't even think twice about it."

Brice, who had surgery in May for a brain tumor, has also received autographs from Steve Garvey, Reggie Jackson and the Rams. According to his father, Brice is recovering from his illness.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to terminally ill children. Michael, who has never talked with Donahue, was contacted by a representative Sunday with the news of the tickets.
