CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Cavaliers visited the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital on Wednesday to bring cheer to sick, young patients and their families during the holiday season.

Wade, LeBron James, Kevin Love, Coach Tyronn Lue, and the rest of the Cavaliers went room to room and delivered Cavs-themed Christmas gifts to the patients.

"We're very fortunate and blessed to be able to play this game that we love," said Tristan Thompson. "Coming in here and hearing people's stories and seeing what these families go through what, it just shows that these are the real warriors, the real soldiers.

The visit was part of the Cavaliers "Season of Giving," presented by Nestlé Baking.
