People around the world send videos and prayers to young Chiefs fans battling brain cancer
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) – A 4-year-old boy from Kansas City faces the fight of his life, but he doesn’t do it alone.
Reece Hall is an energetic kid who enjoys riding his motorcycle, cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs, and joking with his younger brother, Calvin.
“Two peas in a pod man,” said Matt Hall, Reece’s dad. “They are best friends like all brothers.”
Until last December, Reece led a normal life like any other child. Now he’s running to recover from stage 4 brain cancer.
“Obviously this has been a damaging and major shock,” Hall said. “It’s been a tough few weeks for us for sure.”
Reece recently had two surgeries to remove a brain tumor, and now he needs chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
But he gets a lot of support along the way.
“But Reece Hall stands in the tough room and throws it,” said Mitch Holthus, Kansas City Chiefs radio presenter. “Touchdown Kansas City. He finds Calvin Hall in the end zone and they start their own hall of fame.
Holthus gave Reece a special shout before the big game. Reece said messages and support like this make it easier.
The family said more videos and special prayers came from people around the world.
Thousands have joined this Facebook page where they watch Reece’s journey.
“It really touches our hearts,” Hall said. “It gives us faith. It gives us cheers of joy letting us know that we have a strong faith behind us and a strong community fighting for it.
Since the diagnosis, Reece has started speech therapy and is regaining her balance so that she can ride her motorcycle again.
A GoFundMe was created to help Reece’s family with the expenses.
