What’s not to love about Gronk?

Lauren Meizo has been a long time fan of the New England Patriots, but specifically the team's tight-end Rob Gronkowski.

Lauren created a video asking Gronk to come visit her at Brigham and Women's Hospital where she has been living now for 85 days while awaiting a second heart and kidney transplant. The 27-year-old has spent countless months in the hospital over the last few years battling ongoing health issues and was truly in need of a pick-me-up.

Thankfully, the self-proclaimed "hardcore" Pats fan got to meet her idol -- and his brother Gordie even joined in on the visit! We're hoping this will be Lauren's good luck charm to finally get the surgeries that she so desperately needs.
