Still, being ill may prevent us from actually attending,This affects his feelings.

Hemphill suffers from a rare autoimmune disease which keeps him bedridden.

The little boy is currently staying at the University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital, the top floors of which provide a scenic overlook over the Hawkeyes’ football stadium. Although the little boy couldn’t get out of bed to watch the game from the windows on his own, his parents and the hospital staff had an idea. One day, they wheeled his hospital bed up to the windows so he could see outside Watch this game .

Hemphill’s mother posted on Facebook that the experience has moved her son:

First time he actually smiled and giggled since we been here. This is such an amazing thing. He felt so special! Thank you everyone that waved! I had tears in my eyes. Even through everything he smiled. ๐Ÿ˜Š❤️๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ’› #iowahawkeyes #iowafootball #espn #bigten #collegefootball #hawkeyes

I think with the new U of I hospital addition open, Kinnick should hold a “wave to the kids” minute during every game. Can you imagine how neat it would be to have all of those fans, players, // coaching staff looking up at you sending a little extra inspiration?

Fortunately, the university listened--and it made all the difference to little Wyatt Hemphill.

Hemphill’s condition is serious and will likely require bone marrow transplants in order for him to make a full recovery. To see so many people cheering for him and encouraging him lifted his spirits as it surely does to all the other children at the hospital.
