Child cancer survivor throws Indians first pitch

Child cancer survivor throws Indians first pitch

CLEVELAND - First pitches are done by dignitaries, celebrities, politicians, even local TV people, but this 9-year-old might beat them all.

That is 9-year-old Austin Gallagher. He was 10-months-old when he was diagnosed with cancer.

After months of chemotherapy, multiple surgeries and the loss of a kidney, we are happy to say Austin is cancer free. He and his family are representing St. Baldrick's. 

The organization raises millions in cancer research.

St. Baldrick's raises the most money for child cancer, outside of the federal government. Much of that money comes from their "shaved head campaign."
