One woman on a mission to help a terminally ill Cavs fan wish come true by tweeting

One woman is on a mission to help a terminally ill teenager meet Cavs superstar Lebron James.

High school senior Kyle Osborne is a huge Lebron fan. The teenager loved spending time playing basketball as well. But, last year that all changed. Doctors discovered Kyle had a rare form of cancer that left him paralyzed.

His dad, Aaron, said the family learned that Kyle had terminal cancer in November.  That's when Kyle shared a wish with his dad. He wanted to meet Lebron.

"It would be a dream come true to meet him," Kyle said.

Kyle,19, is too old for the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help.

But it was the help of  Laura Onorato, who wanted to put a strong effort into making Kyle's dream come true. 

The New Mexico woman — who does not know Kyle — tweeted as many people as possible and asked others to retweet it. It's now been retweeted more than a thousand times.

"It's an example of one person helping another person and hoping that will cause a chain reaction," Onorato said.

Onorato is trying to get the attention of Lebron and the Cavaliers in hopes of making a dream a reality.

"Where do I begin, he is an amazing person. He can put his mind to anything and get it achieved," said Kyle.

Now, Kyle and Laura are hoping a kid from Akron can make a dream come true for a kid in Albuquerque.
