Peyton Manning Makes a Special Call to a North Dakota Family
Former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning took one North Dakota family by surprise and called them personally.
As to be expected, Carlos Romero, A Dickinson man, was skeptical when he answered a phone call and the voice on the other end belonged to the former Broncos quarterback.
Manning was calling to give his support to Romero's wife, Savannah. Savannah was in a motorcycle accident west of Belfield on March 6th. After a short stay at CHI St. Alexius she was transported to Swedish Medical Center in Denver.
Carlos and Savannah are huge Denver Broncos fans. Once the mother of one of his daughter's friends heard about the accident, she started contacting people who knew Manning.
According to the Fargo Forum, in his nearly 10 minute long conversation, Manning says:
I just want you to know you've been in my thoughts and prayers. ... I know you're going through a tough fight right now, but you've got a lot of people pulling for you and praying for you. You've been a big supporter and fan of mine, and I just wanted you to know I'm a big fan and I'm pulling for you.

Savannah is currently in a 'semi-conscious state.' A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family. So far, the page has raised roughly $6,500. The couple also has a 12 and 9-year-old.
Feel free to make a donation to the family. Our thoughts are with you all!
