EastIdahoNews.com and Ashley Furniture HomeStore are teaming up every week to bring you some good news during Feel Good Friday!

We want to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness and leave you feeling good.

Han Wheeler is a 9-year-old boy who goes to Rimrock Elementary. A few weeks ago, he had a seizure and was rushed to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center before being taken to Primary Children’s Hospital.

Doctors discovered a brain tumor and performed surgery on Han. Since that day, he has not woken up and specialists believe the tumor may be terminal.

Han has a large loving family and his mother is staying by his side in Salt Lake City while his father and siblings try to continue with their daily activities in eastern Idaho. A benefit run and concert was held for “Team Han” last weekend and everyone is doing the best they can despite the circumstances.

We decided to let Han’s sisters know that they aren’t forgotten during this difficult time. We surprised them at Thunder Ridge High School.
