PLATTEVILLE, Colo. - When you get to meet your favorite team, that's something you never forget.

Alex Bray, 22, had two brain tumors removed during his childhood. He still treasures the time the Make-A-Wish Foundation allowed him to spend a day with the Colorado Avalanche.

"All the players came over and talked to me, gave me five, and asked me how I was doing," he told Denver7. "Joe Sakic actually asked me if I brought my skates, [in case] they needed me."
