Zimmer Visits Pediatric Cancer Patients



MINNEAPOLIS — Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer lifted the spirits of 3-year-old Aria Quinn and others on Monday afternoon.

Aria has neuroblastoma, a rare cancer, and is undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota.

Zimmer made a surprise visit to the hospital and spent time with Aria, sitting on the floor of a room while she played with a Vikings stuffed animal.

“She was very sweet,” Zimmer told Vikings.com. “She had an IV plugged into her.”

A Twitter account for Aria posted about the interaction Monday:
