The Squeeze: Peyton Manning makes dying fan's day

Happy Friday, #BroncosCountry –

We hope you're decked out in your orange and blue for Orange Friday! There are just two more days until the big day, so here are a couple things to keep you preoccupied:

1. Manning helps make fan's wish come true
Cindy Harris of Colorado Springs has been fighting cancer for the last two years, and after being given a month to live, her family began making plans for her to meet her favorite NFL player, Peyton Manning.

Harris' family began to spread her story in a plea for her to meet Manning on Tuesday, and just a day later, the Broncos heard about her wish.

As the Broncos prepare for their big game Sunday, Manning was unable to drive down to meet Harris in Colorado Springs, but he made sure to give her a call Wednesday.

"I just want you to know that I'm glad to hear you're such a big Broncos fan and supporter of mine. And, I appreciate that and that you are in my thoughts and in my prayers," said Manning over the phone. "I know you're going through a tough fight right now and you have a lot of people pulling for you and praying for you and you can add me to that list."

Manning encouraged her to keep fighting and to scream loudly for him and the Broncos this Sunday. Reserve Casino Hotel donated a pair of tickets for Harris and a friend to cheer on Manning in person this Sunday.

Watch her touching story below before she and Manning were put in touch:
