Teen with Leukemia Gets a Special Surprise from LeBron James

Teen with Leukemia Gets a Special Surprise from LeBron James


Amidst of quite possibly the most anticipated Cleveland Cavaliers regular season campaign, there are those out there who are playing a much bigger game than basketball.

Sixteen-year-old Jackie Custer is currently in the middle of a battle with Leukemia, but on Wednesday night, for one day, she felt like the luckiest girl in the world. Custer visited the Cavaliers’ Wine and Gold Scrimmage on Wednesday night and got a special treat from LeBron James.

Custer tweeted this message in addition to a photo of her hugging the King himself.

Jackie shows a mix of bravery and grit in which we could all learn something from.

Fox Sports captured the special moment with this video.
