LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The small town of Taylorsville is coming together to help a 10-year-old boy battling cancer.
Dawson Moore is the 14th person in the world to be diagnosed with a rare type of tumor. Doctors found the tumor on his brain stem a few weeks ago, and say it could get worse in a few months.
This weekend, his coaches organized a benefit baseball tournament to raise money for his family.
Dawson's teammates stepped up to the plate for their friend. They took third place in the tournament, giving him the game ball.
Stanley Shivers, Dawson's baseball coach, helped organize the event.
"It's just about trying to bring him hope, trying to put a smile on his face," Shivers said.
The two-day tournament raised more than $24,000. The money came through donations, admissions, raffles, and much more.
It all goes to the Moore family to help them get through this tragic time.
Melody Moore, Dawson's mom, was overwhelmed with the amount of support they have received.
"He's laughed and smiled the whole time," Melody says. "And he just thinks this is amazing and at the same time looking at him you can't even really tell he's that sick because he's up wanting to do this."
If you would like to donate to the Moore family, a fund is set up at the Citizens Union Bank in the Dawson's name.
