Cancer patient Austin Dunlap got a visit from some special cowboys today at Seattle Children’s. Dunlap, 16, is being treated for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is also a big fan of Professional Bull Riders (PBR.) Due to a recent bone marrow transplant, he’s unable to leave the hospital and attend the Professional Bull Riders Passport Invitational this weekend in Tacoma. He wished the riders could visit him in the hospital- and his Pediatric Advanced Care Team worked with PBR to make his dream come true.
