About this show

At the age of 8, this typical, healthy, all-star baseball player was diagnosed with Leukemia, a cancer of the blood that was unknown to him and his family. This play looks at the strength of a young boy and his family during a time where success seemed impossible; yet failing was not an option. It intimately explores the emotional highs and lows of hospital care, as well as the joy and pain associated with maintaining a family's spirit of hope while faced with what some doctors would say was certain death. But this is not a story about death or sorrow but one of resilience. A celebration of how the struggles in life shape us into who we are. A story of HOPE.
