Aaaw, so cute...

BOSTON (CBS) – A pint-sized Bruins fan is melting hearts across New England and beyond. Eight-year-old Liam Fitzgerald was invited to sit on the bench during the pregame skate at Tuesday night’s game.

A camera captured the scene as the adorable boy held his fist up, getting a fist bump from every Bruins player leaving the ice. The video has gone viral because of its sheer cuteness.

“You can see his excitement to be there,” said Defenseman Adam McQuaid. Liam dressed up as McQuaid for Halloween once. “It’s special for him. But it’s also very special for us.”

Liam has Down Syndrome, and has successfully battled leukemia. After several rounds of cancer treatments, he’s been cancer-free for a year and a half. “When he goes to a game, by the end, more people than not know who he is and feed off his joy and energy,” says his father Bill Fitzgerald.

we need more of this, with all the messed up crap happening on a daily basis, we need these things just to remember what we are fighting for.
So thank you for posting!

Another Youngster who passed away in the not so distant past "" was also honored by the Boston Bruins. To hear this young man speak and to be suffering such a terrible disease, Progeria, always brings me to to tears. Class Act, Sam Berns and the Boston Bruins.
