FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) -- Kevin Lee is one win away from seeing his Super Bowl prediction come true.

The 12-year-old from Farmington Hills, and Seattle Seahawks fan, was born with a rare condition which prevents his heart from supplying oxygenated blood to the lungs. Kevin has overcome four open-heart surgeries, and as a result, can't play contact like other kids his age.

It was over the summer when his mother, Dawn Lee, contacted the Make-A-Wish foundation and they helped make his dream come true: to play football with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Lee and his family flew to Seattle where Kevin played catch with Wilson, met the players and even signed a five-year contract with the team. It was there that Kevin made his prediction -- a Super Bowl win. He even went so far as to write 'there will be a Super Bowl' on thank you cards he wrote to the team.

"That's what I think got them there, truthfully. I think it was my line."

Now, Kevin and his mom will be at MetLife Stadium Sunday to cheer on the Seahawks, thanks to the Suquamish Tribe, a Native American tribe based in the Seattle area.

Kevin's final score prediction? "Thirty-four, 33, Seattle."

Regardless of who wins, this is one kid we're all rooting for.
