Phyllis has stayed at Fisher House several times while her husband, Jack, has undergone surgeries & treatments for cancer. Despite the immense challenges of her husband's illness, Phyllis always has a smile on her face and a warm, loving heart that is big enough to offer caring and support to others despite her cares. So when a family friend arranged for some Seahawks to visit Jack in the hospital, Phyllis insisted that they visit other patients AND that they start their tour at the Fisher House. On Friday, April 18, Linebacker Mike Morgan and DL Jesse Williams arrived with some team trainers AND the Lombardi Trophy. The excitement of the guests was palpable but it went through the roof when they let folks hold the trophy! Let's face it; that's not something that happens every day!
During their championship season the Seahawks brought Seattle - and our region - together in a truly remarkable way. By sharing the trophy with patients and families, they gave everyone the opportunity to feel like the champion they really are.
We are so grateful to the team for their visit. They brought a lot of joy to a lot of people.
