Russell Wilson talks about young patient who gave him wallet

Russell Wilson’s weekly visits to Seattle Children’s Hospital have become a well-documented and much-admired aspect of his story.

Wilson added another chapter to it this week when he led off his weekly press conference Thursday by showing reporters a wallet made of duct tape by a girl he had visited.

It was then learned that the girl had had a heart transplant this week that apparently has gone well.

Wilson met the media briefly again today to talk about the girl and provide an update, saying:

“I’m just so happy for Allison the little girl who is 11. She was able to give me the wallet and duct tape it all up, and the next day she finds a heart and gets heart surgery. That’s unbelievable. That’s just a blessing from The Lord that things happen that way. It’s a tremendous honor to get to know the girl. She was so sweet and so gracious.”

Here’s some video of Wilson talking to the media today:
