Not long after Kevin Durant scored 29 points in a loss to the Wizards on Monday, the three-time NBA scoring champion was back in Oklahoma making a difference for one young fan on his birthday.

On Tuesday afternoon, 14-year-old Ramarcus Ervin got a surprise visit from the NBA superstar after reaching out to Durant on Twitter just 24 hours earlier, per Oklahoma News 9.

After reading the tweet before the Thunder's road game in Washington D.C., Durant visited The Children's Center where Ervin receives 24-hour care. According to the Oklahoman, Ervin has battled a form of a muscular dystrophy and has resided at the center since he was two months old.

“I wanted to meet Ramarcus as soon as possible,” Durant said. “I am very blessed I got this opportunity. He’s a great kid. To hear people say he’s a big fan means a lot to me.”
