What makes it a feel-good story is why Atchison came back to the US. His daughter Callie has a rare illness and Atchison wanted his daughter to be closer to her hospital for her treatment. So all this was for his daughter. With my own situation, I was pulling extra hard for Atchison but didn't want to jinx it by talking about it. Because, as a Red Sox fan, I am convinced that anything I do or say could affect the Red Sox in a tangible and likely negative fashion.
