Rob Gronkowski Surprises Young Fan At Melrose Home

CBS Boston

A young boy undergoing chemotherapy for a genetic disorder received a big surprise when Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski arrived for the dedication of a football field that was painted in his backyard.

Seven-year-old Ryan Feeney was born with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves in his body.

He had a lower-leg amputation when he was two years old and now uses a prosthetic on his right leg.
