How Kobe Bryant's Kindness Impacted Young Fan With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Also available on the nbc app

As we continue to celebrate the lives of Kobe and his daughter Gianna, we're once again reminded of Kobe's kindness to others. Alex Llauro, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is a great example of this. Kobe inspired him to become captain of his school's flag football team, and he even scored a touchdown! It all began with a note from Alex's godmother telling Kobe about him. Kobe said he wanted to help him and their foundation Walking Strong, and that included a surprise meeting with Alex. Alex and his mother Valerie spoke to Access Hollywood co-host Kit Hoover all about their special memories with the NBA star.
