This past weekend a Montreal Canadiens fan named Tammy Whitehead shared a video to Facebook of her nephew Anderson meeting his idol Carey Price. Anderson tragically lost his mother to cancer last year, but before his mother passed away she promised that she would do everything she could to make Anderson’s dream on meeting Price come true. She passed before she could fulfil her promise, but thanks to some friends and to the Habs organization, Anderson’s dream became a reality.

Check out this heartwarming video with the description from Tammy below:


"I wanted to share this video of my nephew Anderson, meeting his idol, Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens. Last year as Anderson’s mom was dying of cancer she promised she would do everything she could to make his dream come true. Unfortunately, she passed away before that could happen but through some very kind and generous friends we were able to arrange a visit to the morning skate. As you can see in the video, Carey Price was a class act not only giving Anderson two signed sticks, a signed puck, signing his jersey and mini stick but he also gave him the biggest hug. Words cannot describe how much this meant to Anderson and we are forever grateful to this wonderful man."

How sweet is that? Much respect to Carey Price and to the Habs organization for arranging this meeting.
