Rex Fleming: Abilene family tells story of 10-year-old son’s battle with brain cancer

Lance Fleming keeps a folded napkin in his wallet. It’s something he will keep for the rest of his life. On it are the words his son Rex said the night before his first brain surgery: “I’ll live to tell the story.” Odds are Rex won’t live to tell the story. The 10-year-old has been battling brain cancer for two years, and his condition has grown dire since the beginning of the month. It appears Lance and his wife, Jill, will have to tell his story.
