Boy with rare form of bone cancer has wish granted by Make-A-Wish, St. David's Healthcare at Texas-LSU game

Make-A-Wish and St. David's Healthcare granted the wish for Steel, a 9-year-old boy battling a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma.

AUSTIN, Texas — A 9-year-old boy battling a rare form of bone cancer was surprised with a granted wish by the Make-A-Wish foundation after the first quarter of the Texas-LSU football game. 

His name is Steel. 

In the summer of 2018, Steel, who was 8 years old at the time, began experiencing terrible headaches while at baseball camp. Weeks later, doctors discovered he had a rare bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma, which caused a tumor to grow on his skull. His treatment included nine months of chemotherapy and 30 rounds of radiation.  

Steel was granted a beach vacation of his dreams during the presentation.
