The lights are on
A young Halo fan who endured a nine-hour liver transplant was treated with a surprise visit from Bungie and a host of gifts.
The boy's father, who goes by the online handle "fiscal_" posted an image gallery of the boy and his thanks. Gifts included a card signed by members of the studio, a Halo shirt, and, most impressively, a full-sized replica of Carter's helmet from Halo: Reach. Dad says his son is recovering well, and that the gifts were a big mood booster in a difficult time.
The father also cut off any back-seat parenting off at the pass, saying that his son doesn't play the M-rated series, but that he loves the character of Master Chief and the series' action figures. Dad says the boy only watches snippets of the game when he's with his parents.

That's awesome. good job
That's awesome. Wonderful for a company like Bungie to do that.
nice work guys:)
I had a Halo action figure when I was younger. I wasn't allowed to play the game at the time, but I loved the action figures.
That's awesome. Bungie just went up a couple points in my book.
These kind of things make me smile :)
thank you bungie for putting a smile on this little warrior's face...i hate seeing kids be sick and i also thank you for not sending the game which is mature...thank you gamers, we r a good bunch of people when it matters...get well little one...
That made my day!
Very nice gesture on their part; and now I want a helmet, too. :)
One of the many thin!gs that makes Bungie so radical
Aww, that's awesome. Not a big fan of Halo, but I am a fan of big time developers who take time to appreciate the fans.
That's great. Bungie, you're the best!
