Cubs veteran pitcher Jon Lester reached out to cancer fighter Tyler Trent this week to invite him and his family to Wrigley Field and sent him some signed cleats and a jersey with his name on it.

The long-time Cubs fan was excited about the opportunity to go to Opening Day at Wrigley Field next year as it is one of his goals as he battles bone cancer.
