Hard to top this…

Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons grew a strong bond with 10-year-old Patrick Hobbs-DeClaire, who has terminal cancer.

Patrick is a huge fan of Parsons, and on a Christmas Day trip to the Texas hospital where he is staying Parsons surprised the young boy with his newly buzzed head.

Parsons said the following after the big Christmas surprise, via Houston Chronicle:

“His dad was telling me how he isn’t even scared of death,” Parsons said. “He is more worried about not looking like his twin brother anymore, so me being his favorite player, I decided to shave my head to look more like him and hopefully give him some support and encouragement from me.”

Amazing story.
