When all's said and done, Patrick Mahomes might end up being one of the best quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL. He also appears to be one of the classiest players as well.

Mahomes' interactions with a young Kansas City Chiefs fan over the summer have garnered attention of late, and the story is as heartwarming as ever.

Whitney Wells has a rare brain tumor, but that didn't stop her and her family from attending the Chiefs' summer minicamp. Wells had the opportunity to meet Mahomes, and she promptly gave him a wristband with her name on it.

And apparently, Mahomes has been wearing it ever since.

Perhaps the bracelet somehow helped Mahomes avoid a more serious injury than the one he suffered last week. After originally being expected to miss over a month of action, a recent report from Adam Schefter suggests that the QB could be back in under three weeks.

Props to Mahomes for staying classy and recognizing an opportunity to keep a sick Chiefs fan suffering both on the field and in his thoughts. Get better soon, Whitney.
