This really sucks to write, but I'm hoping you guys can help me out a little. My best friend has cancer, he has been fighting like a champ for 2 and a half years now, but has finally run out of options and started hospice, he doesn't have very long left and there is no chance for remission. When we were sitting and talking the other day, he asked me if I had ever been to a Lions game, and when I said that I hadn't he said that was the one thing he would really like to do before he passes. He's born and raised in South Carolina, and lives in Toledo, but he wants the only pro game he's ever going to go to, to be a Lions game.
Since I've never been to Ford Field I was hoping you could answer answer a few questions for me. I think he will need handicapped seating, even though he is not in a wheel chair(at the moment) he can't climb stairs and can't sit in the normal seats, how do you go about getting handicapped seats? I am taking him and his wife, and plan to bring my wife also since she is a nurse and can help in case any issues come up during the trip, will all 4 of us be able to sit in a handicap area together?
When it comes to buying tickets, are there tickets specifically for the handicapped sections, or do I just buy regular tickets and tell them we need handicap seats when we get there? Any options for parking close so he doesn't have to walk to far?
And lastly, the game I plan to take him to is the Bears game, is it best to go to a place like stub hub for tickets, or is there is better way to get some? He said he's not too concerned with having great seats, he just wants us all to go together.
Thanks for any help guys, this is my best friend and I really want to make this happen for him, I'm hoping that for a couple hours he can take his mind off things and just have a good time.
