Aaron Rodgers has been one of the biggest supporters of the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Caner), getting involved in the organization in multiple ways.
One way in which Rodgers has been involved is through a series of "It's Aaron" videos, in which the Green Bay Packers quarterback visits people who battled cancer as children.
After previously spending time with Maggie and Dijon, Rodgers' latest video is with Brandon, who was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 12.
"My bones got really bad from the steroids I had to take for the treatments," Brandon told Rodgers in the video. "My spine fractured, both my feet fractured just from walking around."
Brandon added that he had to undergo 108 weeks of treatment.
Fortunately, years later, Brandon beat leukemia.
"It makes you grow up real fast," Brandon told Rodgers.
Rodgers drove Brandon out to Lake Michigan and shared his one fishing story that concluded with the former MVP "puking over the side of the boat." The two tossed a football around in Brandon's backyard, including one that Rodgers threw over the house that didn't seem to end well.
Rodgers' dedication to the MACC Fund has been shown for several years and is clearly something he's very passionate about.
