No. 5: Abilene sports teams rally around 10-year-old with brain cancer

Abilene teams rallied around Rex Fleming, who was diagnosed with brain cancer after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor two years ago. Fleming, the 10-year-old son of Abilene Christian University sports information director Lance Fleming, passed away Nov. 25. Sports were an important part of Rex’s life, and he was a passionate fan of the Abilene High football team. He spent a lot of time with the Eagles this past season, and the team had pretty much taken him in as one of their own.
