If you needed another reminder why Seattle loves Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, here you go.
To start his Thursday afternoon press conference, Wilson didn’t talk about practice. He didn’t talk about this Sunday’s matchup against the Texans in Houston.
He talked about a unique gift given to him by a patient at Children’s Hospital.
“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 blue and green wallet with the Seahawks logo on it.
“The coolest part about it is it’s all made out of duct tape,” said Wilson. “It’s like perfect.”
The wallet was made by 11-year-old Allison, who was waiting for a heart transplant at Seattle Children's Hospital. On Thursday afternoon, Allison's older sister Nicole contacted KING 5 on Twitter to say they found a donor for Allison Wednesday night.

Nicole says Allison is doing well so far.
