VIDEO: Memphis Grizzlies draft 8-year-old with cerebral palsy
The Memphis Grizzlies made history on Sunday when they drafted a young fan who has cerebral palsy. Charvis Brewer, 8, became the youngest player drafted in the history of the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies partnered with the Make-A-Wish foundation to make his dreams come true.
Brewer had the opportunity to meet with players, attend practices and call plays. He also got the chance to have is own press conference to discuss team matters.
The Make-A-Wish foundation has been very busy lately. Just last week, Beyonce teamed-up with the foundation to give 12-year-old cancer patient Taylon Davis the chance to sing and dance with her at a recent show in Las Vegas. In November, the organization partnered with the city of San Francisco to transform 5-year-old leukemia survivor Miles Scott into “BatKid” and save the city.
