Talk about a super visit for some super kids!
For several hospital patients at Seattle Children's Hospital, Saturday wasn't just any other day. Instead, it was a star-studded affair as two Hollywood A-listers entered the premises to bring some much deserved joy to patients in need.
The pair surprised several young patients where they posed for pictures, gave special pep-talks and even met with families.
"Thanks to @Disney for all your magic to make this visit possible and for sending Captain America his suit," the hospital tweeted with several photos Saturday afternoon. "Meeting Captain America and Star-Lord is an experience our patients will always remember."
One of those lucky patients was Oskar Beechum. The seven-year-old, who is being treated for epilepsy and has been a patient for four months at the hospital, was thrilled at the chance to meet two of his idols.
"Meeting them was a nice reprieve for us," Oskar's mom Kelli told the hospital. "So many of our visitors are doctors, and the conversations are medical. I can't wait to watch the "Captain America" movie with Oskar. It will be like he knows him personally now."
Another parent said her 14-year-old son's face lit up instantly as soon as they walked in.
"It gave Tyler five minutes of happiness," Allison Gower shared. "This situation will never be normal, but their visit helped make us feel special."
