Student with terminal cancer coming to Cleveland to fulfill wish at Cavaliers game

Terminal cancer teen will attend Cavs playoff game

CLEVELAND - Kyle is one step closer to seeing his wish come true.

Kyle Osborne is an Albuquerque, New Mexico high school senior with Myxopapillary Ependymoma Metatasis, an extremely rare form of cancer. Though he has been deemed as terminal, Kyle continues to fight.

At age 19, Kyle is considered too old for eligibility for Make-A-Wish, so another wish foundation is stepping in.

Kyle's wish is to see LeBron James. His friends and family have rallied across social media in effort to help his wish come true.

Last week, the LeBron James Family Foundation sent Kyle a special package, complete with a James jersey and practice-worn shoe.

Now, A Special Wish Foundation is working to help complete Kyle's dream and get him to a Cleveland Cavaliers game to see James in action.

The Cavaliers have already offered VIP seats to Kyle for the first home game of the Eastern Conference Finals, though that date has not been determined since the Boston-Washington series is not yet complete.

A Special Wish will bring Kyle and his family to Cleveland to give him the true 216 experience with a visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and other Cleveland landmark sites. The Marriott Key Bank Center will provide Kyle with a two-night stay and Safe and Reliable Limo will handle his transportation.

Kyle will also get to eat like a Clevelander, with spots like Mabel's, The Winking Lizard and Barrio planning to offer him complimentary meals.

"Thanks to our generous donors and community partners here in Northeast Ohio who are donating these wonderful services, ASW will be able to fulfill Kyle's wish and really show him and his family what Cleveland is all about," said Jason Beudert, co-founder of A Special Wish Foundation's Cleveland Chapter.

Let's just hope the weather decides to cooperate as well.
