Lifelong Kansas City Chiefs fan Felipe Lopez finally got to see his favorite team in person on Dec. 16 when the Chiefs beat the Los Angeles Chargers.

Hours after the game, Lopez died in his hotel room.

Lopez, 56, was diagnosed with liver cancer earlier in 2017 and told by doctors that he had six months to live. Thanks to the Dream Foundation, he was able to get to Kansas City to see the Chiefs play and even got to be on the field before the game.
