Buffalo Bills Fan Battling Cancer Continues Dream to Follow Team to Super Bowl
Bonnie Fiegel and her husband Scott are spending their retirement, and their kid's inheritance, following the Buffalo Bills around the country. All while Bonnie battles cancer. And they're back at it for another season.
The Pendleton, New York couple, who have been married for 33 years, have cheered on their beloved Bills through the years while working and raising 4 children. "We've been Bills fans for as long as I can remember," said Bonnie. "We went to a couple of games each year but it was always my dream to do them all."
Shortly after Bonnie retired in 2019, she found out she had bladder cancer. "I had 18 tumors removed and when my husband finally retired we decided it was time to fulfill my dream."
Bonnie and Scott went to every Bills game last season, planning flights, car rentals, and driving in their motorhome. They even scheduled Bonnie's doctor's appointments around the games. "My doctor is awesome and is in full support of my journey."
At each game, the couple took pictures inside and outside the stadium with a flag that said they are spending their kid's inheritance. "Our kids are in full support of our travels," said Bonnie. "They even helped us design the flag."
The kids weren't the only ones who loved it. "We ran into people who asked if they can have a picture with us," Bonnie explained. "It was a great experience."
The experience was so great Bonnie and Scott are keeping the tradition alive for the 2022/2023 season, which is off to a great start. The Bills crushed the Rams at SoFi Stadium in the Thursday night opening 31-10. Will the Fiegel's finally get to see a Superbowl game this season?
