Tristan Ballinger was surprised with floor seats to Friday’s Chicago Bulls game -- as well as his very own jersey.

The 17-year-old has been in therapy in Chicago since mid-December.

Ballinger suffered a head injury two years ago while playing with a samurai sword in his backyard.

Right now, he’s in the process of regaining the use of his legs.

His family has started a Go Fund Me page to help with the cost of his rehab. Click or tap here to donate.
