10-Year-Old Lily Anderson Brings Braves Fans to Their Feet…and Likely to Tears [VIDEO]
There’s hardly anything more inspirational than the courage of children. We see it and learn about it each year during the St. Jude Radiothon. We’re seeing it now in Owensboro as little Rylan Daugherty continues his ongoing battle with neuroblastoma. And thousands of Atlanta Braves fans saw it last Thursday when a courageous 10-year-old girl named Lily Anderson–also diagnosed with neuroblastoma–stepped up to the plate and belted out the National Anthem. Everyone leapt to their feet for what one witness claimed was the longest ovation he had ever seen. And just as Rylan has a Facebook page dedicated to the support for and awareness of his difficult fight, Lily as a Facebook fan page and website for the same purpose. Yes, these kids desperately need us, but in so many less obvious ways, we need them just as much.
