InsideEdition - The Los Angeles Lakers helped make the dreams of an 18-year-old battling brain cancer come true. Yitizi Teichman was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Chordoma and had a tumor removed last year. When Make-A-Wish approached him he knew right away he wanted to be a member of the Lakers. The team signed the teenager to a special one day contract. They gave him his own jersey, the chance to shoot with the players and he then got to sit courtside for the Lakers, Hornets game.
