Bart Starr still has a lot of fight left in him. 

After a stroke, among numerous other health issues, the Hall of Fame Quarterback and Super Bowl champ continues to fight with the help of his family, and his long-time wife. 

Lance Allan got a chance to catch up with Starr as he rehabs - preparation for a possible return to Lambeau for Favre's number retirement on Thanksgiving night. 

"Bart and Cheri are wonderful people," Allan says, "and it was a tribute to them to be able to see what they go through on a day-to-day basis." 

Lance says Bart's come a long way in his physical therapy, but he says he's equally impressed with Starr's wife of 61 years. 

"Cheri has just given and given and given - and a lot of that has made Bart's journey possible."

Allan says it was an honor to be welcomed into Starr's recovery and home - you can see the results tonight at 10:00 on TMJ4.
