There is only one event worth talking about in this week's edition of 'Weatherford Wednesday.' That would be the amazing impromptu visit New York Giants' punter Steve Weatherford made a few days ago to see leukemia patient Leroy Cruz.

All of that led to these photos:

Here is what Weatherford wrote about the experience on his Instagram page:

Spending the afternoon with Leroy Cruz was a life changing experience. He is only 24 years old, fighting Leukemia. He has such an inspiring attitude about defeating this disease. He is in the fight of his life. He loves the New York Giants, and said,"the way New York Giants never quit when they were playing the 18-0 Patriots in Super Bowl 42 is the way He will never quit until he beats Leukemia!" I am blown away. God bless you in your fight.
