Packers fan Becky Hunter was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer in 2017.

"I was 28 when I found out I had cancer. You just never expect that when you're so young," said Becky.

She and her husband Robert didn't know what the future held.

"They told us that they didn't think it was treatable so basically everything on my wishlist, I thought, you know, there's no way we're going to get to do this," said Becky.

"I asked her, 'What do you want if it's the end? You know, what can I do?'" said Robert.

She told him she wanted him to publish his book Relapse, make another record, and go on a 50 state tour promoting it.

"She made me promise I'd do it even if I had to do it without her. I don't. I'm so grateful she's here, and that we're having an awesome time," said Robert.

Now cancer free, the Pennsylvania couple is on 50 states in 52 weeks tour they're calling "Relapse and Revival."

They've traveled 37 thousand miles since April and have been to 26 states.

Even though she grew up out east, Becky said she's always loved the Packers, so this is an extra special day. She's celebrating a year of remission and cheering on her team.

"I've always wanted to meet Aaron Rodgers. I'm glad to be here at Lambeau so I can at least see him," said Becky.

She said when she was sick, the Packers sent her a personal care package filled with well wishes.

"I didn't think I'd get to be here, so it's pretty exciting," said Becky.

"This has been on her list of places to be and places to go for a very long time. We drove 24 hours in less than two days to be here for this game," added Robert.

The detour to Lambeau Field was a dream Becky thought she'd have to give up.

"To be able to be here is a miracle," said Becky.

The couple is headed back out east for a show, then they will be continuing their tour and encouraging everyone to live their life to the fullest.
