Kevin Durant is known for always being positive and interacting with fans – even if it does result in badly beating a kid in an arcade game or causing another to collapse on sight. This time, Durant gave a pair game-worn and signed sneakers to Brooke Wolcott, a 17-year-old fan battling Cystic Fibrosis, who was denied a wish by the Make-a-Wish foundation.
Durant took to Instagram in support of his young fan with the image captioned, “Hey Brooke- I’m wearing these shoes tonight and will sign them and send to you after the game. You’re an inspiration! Keep up the fight against CF!!”
According to Thunder Digest, Wolcott wished to have Durant design a sneaker to bring awareness to Cystic Fibrosis, a chronic illness that causes lung and digestive problems. She hoped to bring awareness to CF in a similar way Durant’s Aunt Pearl series of sneakers brings awareness to Cancer.
While there is no indication of a Cystic Fibrosis-themed KD releasing as of now, it would be amazing to see Wolcott’s wish come true in the future.
