Twin Town Little League and Alex Holcomb Team Up To Beat Cancer [VIDEO]
I was looking over some local news and found a wonderful story from Jessica Layton and my friends at WNYT.com. It's just the kind of inspirational story I like. A story about winning, winning before you even get up to bat.
It never ceases to amaze me that we can learn more from, and be more inspired by kids than anyone else. Ten year old Alex Holcomb was diagnosed with lymphoma. He has already been through quite a bit of tests, procedures and treatments and his battle is far from over. The good thing is he is not alone in his fight against cancer. As well as a loving family and friends, Alex has his "team".
In this case his team is both his little league baseball team and the entire league. Twin Town Little League has been supporting Alex and people like him in their fight against cancer. The little league is raising money for the "Relay for Life" event at the Joe Bruno Stadium on June 11th and 12th.
As for the team, Alex has been at the field in uniform even though he is not well enough to play. He is there to show his support for his teammates and they are their to support him. It's nice to see "teamwork" at least at the Twin Town Little League is not just reserved for the baseball field. Watch the video from News channel 13, at this link.
