RICHLAND, WA- In true Seahawks spirit, Kadlec raised the 12th man flag on their Richland Hospital Friday. 

They also got a little help from some very special kids. NBC Right Now spoke with Michael Carcano and his cousin Derrick Scherwinka as day four closes in on Caracano's hospital stay. Carcano has been battling intestine problems since he was born. His cousin Scherwinka comes to visit him, and Friday was no different.

"We raise the flag", said Carcano.

 "The 12th man flag?" asked an NBC Right Now reporter. 

"Yes", explained Carcano.

"Who's your favorite player?" said NBC Right Now reporter. 

"Russell Wilson, yeah", said Scherwinka. 

"Wilson too", Carcano echoed.

All the patients that came out to raise the flag were excited to count down from ten as the big "12" was pulled up the flag pole.

Jim Hall at Kadlec said they are keeping the same flag and the people who raised it last year for good luck as the Seahawks take on the Patriots Sunday, February 1st on NBC Right Now.
