2006/02/08 -- SHRINERS HOSPITAL, SPOKANE -- Tyson Haase, 7, stretches out in his seat on the Shriner's bus as he travels to Spokane, Washinton, for special medical treatment at the Shriner's Hospital. Haase was born with a deformity on his left hand which left him with only a thumb and two fingers that were fused together. Surgeons at the Shriner's Hospital were able to separate the fused fingers giving the boy a thumb and two fingers with which he can function relatively normally.
