I am one of the New Orleans Saints superfans. Since 2005 Steve Gleason has been one of my heroes and on June 12th 2015 I had the once in a lifetime experience of having dinner with him and his family in his home. I wanted to do something special for him. So I thought I would make him his own CyborgSaint mask with a little TeamGleason twist. This mask was hand made in Thailand by Onimarushop and it is one of a kind. This is the moment I will cherish for a long time. This is the moment of him seeing the mask for the first time. We spent hours at his house getting to speak with him and learn about the technology that helps him with everyday life. He made it clear how important it is to him that others have access to the knowledge and technology that he has. It was an amazing night that I will never forget and i am glad I am able to share a little piece of it with the Internet. Who dat! And No White Flags

Here is the Link to watch Steve receive his mask

That's really awesome of you. What a great gesture for him to have his own mask. Looks like it was a good night for everyone involved.

Incredible. Steve is one of my Heros as well, and I have a painting of him in my office! This is a true gesture of generosity to someone that has given so much to others! June 12th is my birthday , I must have missed the invite from Steve to dinner! lol

As bad as his body has deteriorated, the man still wears a smile. If that doesn't touch your heart, nothing will.

Tracy Porter's Super Bowl pick 6 was beautiful but Steve Gleason's punt block was like a dream.
