Cancer-stricken 6-Year-Old Baseball Fan Going to World Series Thanks to Stanger

Thanks to one stranger's good deed, a little boy with cancer has been invited to the World Series, and more will join him.

Ryan Zimmerman of Olathe, Kansas was touched by a video posted online. The video featured 6-year-old Royals fan Noah Wilson. Noah, currently undergoing treatment for Ewing sarcoma, was in his hospital bed, but even cancer couldn't dampen the boy's spirits for game night.

Noah's dad shot the video of the Kansas boy dressed in team colors. He pretended to be holding a mic and gave a dramatic performance as a sports announcer during the opening line-up. "Batting second, he's hit singles, he's hit triples, he's hit doubles, his name is Aoki Nori!" Noah cried enthusiastically.

Zimmerman felt moved to do something. He started a GoFundMe page for Noah and his family to raise money for World Series tickets. Donations came pouring in to the tune of $10,000. Noah also got two invites to the game. Joe Torre, Major League Baseball's Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations, and StubHub, a ticket-selling website, both offered complementary tickets.

Noah's father Scott tells the Huffington Post they were 'speechless'. "[Noah] is really excited and it is giving him something to look forward to, and will be a memory that will last a lifetime," said Scott.

Now that Noah's tickets are secured, Zimmerman is putting the rest of the funds raised towards buying tickets for more families with kids who have cancer. For one selfless act, that’s a lot of wonderful memories being made.
