Owen Gray has Marfan syndrome, and he just made friends with teen Quentavious Ross, a fellow Marfan patient staying at the Ronald McDonald House.

Quentavious is recovering from open heart surgery and a liver transplant, so the Rockets wanted to help Owen given him a morale boost.

“I think we’ve got something you might like: Two suite tickets and a parking pass to tomorrow night’s Rockets game,” Owen said.

Quentavious was speechless.
