8-Year-Old Chloe Grimes is battling cancer for the second time in her young life. At 2 1/2 she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of childhood lung cancer. She underwent lots of treatment and a little over a year later she was declared cancer free!!!! Unfortunately, March 20th her family got a call stating that recent scans show thyroid cancer.
What takes your mind off cancer? BASEBALL!! Chloe loves is baseball and especially Tampa Bay Rays player, Brett Phillips. She said, "He has the best smile, he's always having fun, and I like how he does his airplane."
Thanks to the Make-A-Wish program, Chloe recently had the chance to meet her favorite baseball player and threw him the ceremonial first pitch before the game!! She also brought along gifts and told Brett they'd bring him good luck. And they did!! That night Brett Phillips hit a home run and he immediately said, "Chloe, you're an inspiration... that homer was for you." Check out the video from the interview.... it'll have your tears flowing!
