Feel Good Friday: Mets Honor Cancer Survivor
Jessica Lyons of the Queens Courier has the story of Courtney Stewart, a 14-year old cancer survivor who was recently honored by the Mets at Citi Field. Courtney’s six-year-old brother John Jr. threw out the first pitch as Courtney stood with him at the pitcher’s mound.
The Stewart family won the chance to throw out the first pitch at an auction to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The LLS will hold its annual Light the Night Walk in Forest Park Queens on October 16. More information can be found at the event’s website.
