Doctor Dressing As Chewbacca To Keep His Promise To A Young Heart Patient Has Us Cheering

A good doctor goes above and beyond for the patients in their care. At Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Phil Thrush made his patient, Austin Eggleston, a promise: when Austin finally received a heart from the transplant list, he would deliver the news in full costume as Chewbacca (the REAL star of the Star Wars franchise). 

When the day finally came, Austin could hardly contain his excitement:

Twitter loved everything about the video, including Austin's PG exclamation:

People threw Dr. Thrush some major kudos for going the extra mile!

And if this dream came true, why can't another?

Best of luck with your transplant, Austin, and may the force be with you!
