The Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver made a young boys wish come true.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals-OTA The Republic-USA TODAY NETWORK

The impact of the player Larry Fitzgerald has been over the course of 15 seasons with the Arizona Cardinals is the stuff of legends.

His work on the field has put him near the top of every statistical category and makes him a lock to be a Hall of Famer.

What makes Larry Fitzgerald even better is what he has done for the Arizona Cardinals in the community and beyond.

The story of Larry Fitzgerald and Tennyson Erickson is what takes the things Fitz has done and makes you realize what a special person Fitz is as well.

The story of a 7-year-old boy from South Dakota who has leukemia is an emotional enough story, but through ESPN and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Erickson was able to not only have his wish granted, meeting his favorite football player Larry Fitzgerald, but also to have it captured as part of the ESPN My Wish series.

It is quite the emotional story, so grab your tissues and check it out.
