Jackson Kennedy can really throw a baseball.

This young man started playing little league when he was old enough to walk. But at the age of 6 that all came to a halt.

Jackson was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was treated with chemo and radiation and at 7 years old, Jackson was giving himself shots.

But the battle was won and Jackson went on to play ball., even making it to some world series.

Then he got the news, the tumor had returned. But just like when he was 6 it wasn't going to bring him down.

Jackson hopes to play ball for the Alabama Crimson Tide one day, maybe play in the majors. So the battle as just begun.

And the community of Benton is rallying behind this young man. Holding a wiffle-ball tournament to raise money for his family.

His family of fighters.
