Donovan Mitchell isn’t just winning over Utah with his play on the court, it’s how he carries himself off it that is impressing.

Mitchell is part of the NBA players’ obsession with the Cheesecake Factory and was eating at one in Utah. That’s when he was approached by a young girl and fan who is a cancer patient at a nearby children’s hospital. She asked for a photo. She got much more.

This pretty little girl is being treated for cancer at @primarychildrens where Kycie spent so much of her time. Other than our house, I believe Kycie spends her time at that hospital. Walking its halls, and being an angel to so many. Primary Children’s Hospital is such a special place, and I can personally testify of the angels that walk its halls. Today Maya saw her favorite Jazz man @spidadmitchell at the Cheesecake Factory. When she asked for a picture, he ran to his car and signed a pair of shoes for her. Class act Donavan Mitchell, that little act means more than you know. I love that she has on her Kisses For Kycie shirt💕. @jjterry77 #kissesforkycie #keepcalmandmayaon #cancersucks
