EUGENE, Ore. - Jay Trunnell received what he called a "Christmas Miracle" after hearing from the Oregon Ticket Office.
Two years after being diagnosed with colon cancer, he decided he was no longer able to afford his Oregon Football season tickets. During this year's Civil War he said his goodbyes to Autzen Stadium and the people he had sat by for years.
When the ticket office called him and told him someone who wished to remain anonymous had paid to have his tickets renewed, he said he began to cry.
"It kind of reafirms your faith a little bit. It makes you feel like, wow, people do care out there," Trunnell said.
He said his family has been attending Oregon Football games for as long as he can remember, and if he was able to take one of his grandchildren this year it would be four generations now that have used their season tickets.
He said being a Duck fan means never giving up, and he's going to keep up that same attitude with his fight with cancer.
