Tuesday morning Katie Walsh received a pair of surprise visitors to her hospital room at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children.
Broncos defensive linemen Robert Ayers and Kevin Vickerson spent time with the 17-year old high school senior, who is recovering from a procedure that she underwent the day before.
Katie’s mom, Lynda, described the visit as the best medicine they’ve received in the 14 months since Katie began battling illness.
“It was great,” Vickerson said. “Whenever you can put a smile on a kid’s face that’s going through something -– whatever I can do, whatever I can say that can help lift their spirits up, I’m happy to do.”
