In honor of Random Acts of Kindess Day, the LA Kings wanted to help make a wish come true.
So, today, the Kings Care Foundation invited the De Mint family to come to the Kings' practice and get a one-of-a-kind experience.
This was especially true for the oldest son, Tim, who is a huge Kings fan and loves Anze Kopitar.
The De Mint family has three boys who are all suffering from a rare genetic degenerative neurological disorder known as ATAXIA.
ATAXIA usually begins in patients' late adolescent years. The symptoms include loss of motor skills, vision and hearing loss, and muscle weakness causing patients to be unable to walk, drive, and unable to handle their daily basic needs.
Unfortunately, there is no cure.
Because the De Mint family deals with the challenges caused by ATAXIA in their day-to-day lives, the Kings wanted to spoil them with the true Kings experience.
