DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - A Bronx hospice surprised one of its patients with a special evening for her and her children at a Brooklyn Nets game.

Yolanda Harris, a mother of 11, has terminal cancer and spends most of her time at MJHS Hospice in Kingsbridge. On Wednesday, the hospice surprised Harris and several of her children with an all-access pass for an evening at Barclays Center. The gift included round-trip transportation and dinner.

Harris says the gift made her feel special. Her daughter and home health aid, Latifa Ruiz, says she was excited they were all able to do something together as a family.

Harris, who had never been to an NBA game before, called the night a dream come true. She and her family also got to meet Nets player Alan Anderson.
