Leukemia patient receives a special (and tasty) delivery

A few days after undergoing a stem cell transplant to treat his leukemia, Brandon Hohenadel had hamburgers on his mind. From his room at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, Brandon tweeted: “Someone come scoop me up and we’ll go to White Castle.” The folks at White Castle did one better — actually, 100 better. They shipped him 100 freshly-made and frozen White Castle hamburgers, packed on dry ice. In this video, Brandon tells the story — and admits how many burgers he ate shortly after the shipment arrived in his room.
