Union (Okla.) player greeted by wheelchair-bound father battling cancer in Senior Night surprise

What a beautiful story here.

Justin Harris from Union High in Tulsa was greeted with a surprise on Senior Night — his father at center court.

The event was captured by Fox 23 in the video above.

Steve Harris, a former star at the University of Tulsa who also played in the NBA, is battling Stage 4 colon cancer.

Justin was the last senior to be introduced and when he began to walk to the court, his dad was wheeled out to greet him.

Steve and family members were wearing T-shirts that read “Like Father, Like Son.”

“I just wanted to see my son,” Steve said.

Union won the game — and all of Justin’s eight points came in the first quarter when his dad was still there — but the emotional moment will create a lifetime of memories.
