Russell Wilson reunites with Children's Hospital patient who got new hearton October 1, 2013 @ 7:23 pm (Updated: 10:52 am - 10/2/13 )
It was the first time Wilson had a chance to visit with Allison Christensen since she received a new heart.
Wilson climbed into bed with the 11-year-old in a heartwarming picture captured by our friend Aaron Levine over at Q13 Fox Sports Tuesday, with the wallet she made and gave him a week ago.
We learned about Allison last week after Wilson kicked off his weekly media availability by showing off the hand-crafted wallet.
"The best part of my week, I go to Children's Hospital every Tuesday, right? This 11-year-old girl, she made me this Seattle Seahawks wallet, so it's one-of-a kind," said Wilson, holding up the wallet for people to see. "The coolest part about it is it's all made out of duct tape," said Wilson.
Allison is continuing to recover. And after getting another visit from her hero, her smile says it all.
