New Cancer & Critical unit at Children's Hospital

David Padilla, 18, of Olympia, left, his brother Dallas, 16, and mom Kari, look in at the new gym, in the Adolescent and Young Adult unit of the new cancer and critical care unit of the Building Hope expansion at Seattle Children's Hospital Sunday April 21, 2013. Padilla was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his right leg and has been at Children's since October. His room is in the new Adolescent and Young Adult unit, the first of its kind in the nation, with a gym and special amenities and support staff targeted to the needs of teens. Padilla, an accomplished baseball player, liked to see that.
