MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It was a special Father’s Day for one Twin Cities soldier and his young son.

Elijah Morris is almost two years old, and he’s spent the last two months in the hospital battling Meningitides.

He’s had number amputations, but that didn’t stop him from hitting a few golf balls with his father.

Photojournalist Carly Danek captured some of the “perfect” father-and-son day in a video you can watch above.
