Check out this heartfelt story about a 12-year-old boy with terminal leukemia who died one day before meeting his idol NBA star Roy Hibbert.

On Wednesday, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert made plans to take a special trip to Sacramento, California to meet a young Lee Eddins who just wanted to meet “his idol” after learning from doctors he only had to few weeks to live.

Sadly, young Lee Eddins didn’t even have that much time. The 12-year-old boy died on Thursday — one day before Hibbert was slated to make his surprise visit to Lee’s home.

“I was very saddened and distraught,” Hibbert said in an interview Thursday afternoon on CNN. “I want to keep his spirit and memory alive and be part of his cause.”

Hibbert was on the way to the Indianapolis airport when he was informed of Lee’s death. The 7-footer still flew to California to meet Lee’s family.

Watch the heartfelt video below:

Our prayers and condolences go out to Lee’s family, friends and anyone else touched by his loss.
