Kelly Melton is a seven year old Leukemia patient who has found a giant buddy in now-former Kentucky center Nerlens Noel.

Recently, the two shared the red carpet and the opportunity for this beautiful photo was taken. There is just so much going on here, we could take all day dissecting it, but there is really only one thing we find pertinent: Amidst all the hoopla and cameras, this photo is of a star basketball player and future millionaire taking the time to bring a suffering young child under his wing.

And it is Melton, of course, absolutely ballin’ out.

This is just a beautiful moment all around.
