Pacers guard Victor Oladipo is already a fan favorite in Indiana, and he melted hearts after sending an uplifting letter to a young fan with leukemia.

When 10-year-old Cameron Kirk from Danville, Indiana, was diagnosed with leukemia on April 16, a friend and librarian wanted to do something to lift his spirits. They contacted the Pacers to see if the team could help, according to WISH-TV.

The Pacers sent a box for Kirk, including an encouraging note from Oladipo.

"I just wanted to encourage you to stay strong!" Oladipo wrote. "My teammates and I are #CameronStrong!"

"I was already a fan and then when I read that letter, it's the best thing to know that someone so important took the time to out to write our son a letter," Carrie Kirk, Cameron's mom, told WISH-TV.

Cameron started chemotherapy just a few days after being diagnosed, according to the Indy Star. He has three years of treatment ahead of him.
