David's Wish to Meet the Seahawks

David's wish to meet the Seahawks

“ For the first time in a long time he felt lucky. ”


- David's mom

David is an athletic 11-year-old who loves sports and football. While in the hospital recovering from a condition that resulted in the surgical removal of his leg, David spent his time watching football games, especially when the Seattle Seahawks played. David loves all things Seahawks and even chose a Seahawks pattern to decorate his first prosthetic leg.

When given the opportunity to declare his wish, it was no surprise that David wished to meet his heroes from his favorite team. David and his family flew to Seattle and had the experience of a lifetime. David met the Seahawks at their practice, where his favorite player, Russell Wilson, presented David with his own jersey. David even took home his own football signed by all the Seahawks players! David and his family watched a Seahawks game in a private booth where they served David’s favorite food - macaroni and cheese and hotdogs! Later they had a blast touring Seattle. 

David’s family shared that this trip had a special significance of marking a year since the end of David’s chemotherapy treatments, and that after meeting his heroes he found new confidence. For the first time in a long time, David felt lucky.
