Kids Fighting Cancer Get Special Delivery at Seattle Children's Hospital

Some patients at Seattle Children's Hospital got a special delivery from a couple of special visitors. Seahawks Defensive End Tylor Harris and Lenore Thawley, founder of the Healing Hunter Foundation, handed out brand new iPad minis to young patients fighting leukemia. Thawley's son, Hunter, lost his life to cancer — so to honor Hunter's Birthday, Thawley decided to hand out iPad minis to kids fighting cancer at five different children's hospitals along the West Coast.
