LeBron James' Letter To The Late Lauren Hill Is Absolutely Perfect

Friday, Mount St. Joseph's basketball player Lauren Hill, who bravely battled an inoperable brain tumor the past two years, passed away at the age of 19. Hill, who realized her dream by playing in a women's college basketball game this past November, was an inspiration to many, and in the short time between her diagnosis and her passing, she was able to raise over $1.5 million for cancer research.

After hearing the news, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James posted an incredibly touching letter to Hill on his Twitter account. He told her that she's served as an inspiration to him.
