Cancer patients Rachel Henley visited the Seahawks on Friday through an effort spearheaded by rookie defensive tackle Greg Scruggs.
Henley began a Twitter effort to be adopted by the Seahawks after seeing a story about the Oklahoma City Thunder adopting a cancer patient.
“I just tweeted, ‘I wish the Seahawks would take me in,’ ” she said. “Then my friends started this hash tag on Twitter (#SeahawksMeetRachel) and it started trending. It just turned into this whole thing and I was really surprised by it.
Rookie defensive tackle Greg Scruggs caught wind of her effort early in the process and gave it wings.
“It came across me on Twitter. I saw it hadn’t gotten much response. I’m in a position to do something about it, so I just took it upon myself to try and do my best to see to it that it happened,” Scruggs said.
