Video: Boston Celtics Grant Wish of 12-Year-Old New Zealand Boy Losing Vision

Louis Corbett is a 12-year-old Boston Celtics fan from New Zealand who fell in love with the franchise after watching YouTube videos of Larry Bird.

But Corbett knows he won't be able to watch Bird or his favorite Celtics forever as he's dealing with a genetic eye disease called retinitus pigmentosa which unfortunately will result in permanent blindness.

The young fan had his story covered in the Weekend Herald, which just so happened to catch the eye of Celtics owners Wycliffe and Corrine Grousbeck. The Grousbecks' son, Campbell, is blind and attends Perkins School for the Blind in Massachusetts.

Close to their heart, the Grousbecks wanted to do something special for Corbett so they decided to fly he and his family to Boston where they watched the Celtics host the Golden State Warriors.

Boston wasn't able to pull out a victory, but that didn't make the evening any less special for the young fan who had an experience of a lifetime.
