80-year-old Green Bay Packers lover will finally experience Lambeau

WAUSAU (WITI) -- For more than 20 years she's watched every Packers game on television, but has never been to Lambeau Field to cheer on the green and gold.

But Sunday, October 19th, 80-year-old Phyllis Barttelt is getting a chance to cheer on her favorite team in person for the first time.

Phyllis has only watched games at home, or at bars, but has never been to Lambeau.

Last summer, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. That's when the Living Community, where she lives in Wausau, decided to send their favorite Packers fan to Lambeau.

Barttelt's Packers passion is known throughout the assisted living center. She will be decked out in all of her Packer gear tomorrow, and says the team better play extra well for her.
