Son Battling Leukemia Gets A Surprise Trip!


Lt. Col. Tony Lindh of the U.S. Army and his wife Christina have a combined 23 years of active duty service. They have two beautiful children, 5-year-old Penelope and 4-year-old son Tripp.

Last year, Tripp was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and the family has had to adjust to their new normal.

The WUSA9 Impact team refused to let the Lindh family feel forgotten. Journalists teamed up with USO-Metro and Sheehy Toyota, to give the family a surprise of a lifetime.

When the Lindh family arrived at WUSA9, they thought they were getting a tour of the studios.

They had no idea what was coming up next. When they entered the studio, it was full of members of the community who were there to support them.

They also had another surprise for the Lindh family -- a $30,000 donation toward the USO’s Salute to the Troops Orlando program in their honor.

Thanks to that donation, a plane full of Military families dealing with critical illness will get the chance to go to Disney World next year. It’s a program USO-Metro has supported for the past several years and is made possible through partnerships with American Airlines, the Walt Disney Company and the Gary Sinise Foundation. Funding for the 2019 Salute to the Troops Orlando trip is complete with this final donation from Sheehy Toyota.

The Lindh family is now counting down the days until their special trip!
