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.
