A young basketball fan has scored a chance to play with the Utah Jazz.

JP Gibson, a five-year-old who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2012, signed a one-day contract with the NBA team. He donned a jersey and played in the opening scrimmage at the Oct. 6 game in Salt Lake City.

The special day was organized by the “Anything Can Be” project, part of the Millie’s Princess Foundation, which provides financial support to families of children with cancer.
