Several members of the Cowboys, including quarterback Dak Prescott, center Travis Frederick and defensive end Taco Charlton made the rounds across the hospital.

Seeing the players was the highlight of the day for a patient named Kyle. “I was very nervous. I was like, ‘Oh my God I get to meet Dak Prescott.’ I was so happy,” the 15-year-old said. “After having been sick for like two-and-a half weeks I was like Merry Christmas to me.”
