When his daughter was 3 years old, doctors discovered she had brain damage from a stroke she suffered in utero.
"They did a CAT scan and they found out there was brain damage and were talking about her in the fact that she wouldn't learn past a third grade level, and it just devastated us," Haney told ABC.
Despite her prognosis, his daughter beat the odds. She recently graduated high school with honors and will be attending Ball State University next year, according to ABC.
"There goes that third grade level thing that first doctor told us," Haney told the news network.
Since hatching the "Where's Waldo" idea, Haney says it has become a huge hit. He even started a Facebook page for the game.
Prescott told People that Haney has brought lots of smiles to the kids in the hospital.
"He has touched so many lives with this game," she says. "It's just amazing to watch the kids' faces light up and to see them look forward to looking out their windows every day."
