BROOKLYN - A mother battling terminal cancer got the surprise of her life when she and her family received an all-access pass to a Brooklyn Nets game.

MJHS Hospice in Kingsbridge surprised one of their patients, Yolanda Harris, and several of her children, with an evening at Barclays Center that included round-trip transportation and a meal.

"A lot of time, I'm in pain," said Harris, a mother of 11. "There are very few days where I can actually get up and do stuff like this."

The surprise was also a treat for Harris' daughter, Latifa, who is her home health aide. Latifa says she was excited to finally do something fun together as a family.

Harris said this was a dream come true because she had never been to an NBA game. She also had the chance to meet Alan Anderson, of the Nets.

Harris may have brought a little luck to the Nets, as well, because they won the game Wednesday night.
