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 so nice! Bungie is awesome!
Kudos to you, Bungie!
What great folks over at Bungie!
Warms my heart to hear things like this.
f-ck yeah bungie
That's pretty awesome.
It does look a bit concerning though, having this sickly looking child wearing a helmet that doesn't appear to facilitate breathing. Though, I'm sure the doctors would have said if it was actually an issue, so I imagine it's fine. Just looks a bit off.
Wow, very touching. Way to go Bungie! Glad to hear the kid is doing well!
Now that's cool!
This is awesome. I love Bungie.
it just comes to show How nice some people are!
Good job Bungie. That was a great thing for them to do.
bungie is a good guy.
Thats awesome! but I think i have a cold where the heck is my master chief helmet!?!
What business is it of anyone what the child's parents allow him to play.. Anyhow, class as usual from Bungie.
Awesome! That's freaking AMAZING!
Not a big fan of Halo, but that is straight up an amazing gift.
