It was a special day at Orlando Health as a pediatric cancer patient got a surprise visit from some of his soccer idols. Orlando Pride soccer players Aubrey Bledsoe, Christina Burkenroad, Jamia Fields and Dani Weatherholt dropped in at the Cancer Center to surprise 12-year old Zayne Burton, who was completing his final round of proton therapy treatment. Zayne, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor earlier this year, made history when he became the first pediatric patient to undergo proton therapy treatment here in Central Florida at the Marjorie and Leonard Williams Center for Proton Therapy. The players brought Zayne a signed Alex Morgan jersey and then helped him with the ceremonial ringing of the bell to celebrate completing his proton treatment.
