A family is trying to help their 99-year-old grandfather meet LeBron James. 

Samara Elkins and her family are trying to help their Grandpa Sam meet LeBron James. Sam, who has been a Cavs fan since the team was created, was diagnosed three weeks ago with stage four metastatic cancer. After a stint in Hospice he is back home just in time for his 99th birthday on December 20. 

Elkins and family said in a Facebook post that Sam "watches every single game, and when he can't watch it, asks for updates every 10 minutes." He even lives right around the corner in Akron.
