Clemson players visit baby amputee in Greenville

GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Seven players from the Clemson football team granted a fan’s wish today.

The Tigers made an appearance at the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Greenville to visit a 1-year-old amputee patient, Hudson, after a life-changing operation.

“I just have tears of joy, I’m just at a loss for words really. I just can’t believe that this is happening for us,” Hudson’s mom, Kaci Belviso said.

The National Champions were there to cheer on Hudson’s recovery after his surgery.

“He might have this disability but Coach always told us that the only disability you can have is a negative attitude. So we just know that we can come lift his spirit today and set an example for him later in life,” player, Austin Spence said.

The players also visited other children while they were at the hospital.
