5-0 Carolina Panthers Host First-Place Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football
STAMFORD, Conn. – October 22, 2015 – Tomorrow’s “Together We Make Football” segment on TODAY features the story of Carolina Panthers fans Brent and Kayla Galloway, and their daughter Primrose, who was born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD).
Kayla was 19 weeks pregnant when Primrose was diagnosed with CHD. Brent did not know much about the condition at the time, except for the fact that his favorite Panther, Greg Olsen, experienced the same thing with his son. Months later, as Primrose was being taken to her first heart surgery at just two days old, Brent ran into Olsen, who was at the same hospital with his son. The fathers connected.
Brent and Kayla attended a Panthers game later that year. Olsen scored two touchdowns in that game, which also was the first game that Greg’s son, now 2 ½, was able to attend in person.
Sunday Night Football, television’s No. 1 primetime show, continues this Sunday, Oct. 25, when the Carolina Panthers host the Philadelphia Eagles at Bank of America Stadium. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET with Football Night in America, the most-watched studio show in sports.
