Touching video: Carey Price meets fan whose mother died of cancer
A touching video of Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price meeting with a fan is going viral, and once you see it, you’ll understand why.
A woman named Tammy Whitehead shared video on her Facebook page over the weekend that shows her nephew meeting Price, whom she describes as the youngster’s “idol.” Not only did Price give 11-year-old Anderson Whitehead some cool memorabilia, but he insisted on giving the young boy a hug. Take a look.
Here’s what Tammy wrote in the caption:
“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.”
According to CTV, the encounter took place on Saturday at a morning skate before the Canadiens took on the Maple Leafs later that day.
Price may be known for being a Vezina and Hart Trophy winner, but this video shows he is much more than just that.
