Good job EA. Good thing these kids won't go a christmas without, considering the illness they have and all.

I like the tone of disgust in this article. I highly doubt the man knew who they were for patient wise. It's just a theft, sucks, but that's life.

I assure you, theft/robbery is a terrible thing, regardless of timing or who the victims are. Also, he stole from a place called "Carolinas MEDICAL CENTER." I highly doubt he waltzed in thinking he was about to rob a Best Buy.

He broke into a treatment office, he clearly knew why those consoles were there.

Guy should be hung...it's one thing to steal but...yeah I will leave it at that..I do actually hope however that the family and friends of the kids find him and hand out some justice for almost ruining Christmas for them...then again I have been through the worse case scenario of what the family and friends are going through and believe me...cancer isn't fun.

All I will say is and yes this is blunt, right in your face and probably something not anyone wants to hear but "terminally ill" means no cure...it means family and friends get to watch their loved one slowly lose a battle, no matter how hard their loved one fights it...their body shuts down from the inside out and so when it comes to terminally ill patients, they are made comfortable, they are given things to take their mind off it all and enjoy their last moments (depending on how long they have been estimated to have...some could have years, others may have just mere days)

This guy has pretty much gone in with no care of any of the above...his reason? Could be justified, could be that he needs the money, maybe he really doesn't care and thought they won't need them...no matter his thought pattern, someone stepped up and said "this is wrong" and then further rectified the issue.

So I haven't clicked the source, busy and all that, but Lydia quotes twice about 'young cancer patients' and 'recovering' but both of those say nothing about terminally ill cancer?

This is despicable, I'm actually disgusted somebody would do that. Like ShadowJ said, he should be punished severely. It's bad enough to steal, but to steal something from terminally ill children is something else.

Good job EA, you did the right thing

The spokesman says "going through the treatment," so "terminally ill" has been removed. Good catch.
