Daphne Community Donates $20K to Help Family of Boy Recovering From Brain Tumor

"Knowing that we had an impact and were able to let them know they're supported, it meant more than the world to us,"

A Daphne community is helping support the family of a boy recovering from a brain tumor. Greyson Cushman, 6, continues to recover from surgery to remove a brain tumor, but members of Daphne Youth Baseball have collected funds to help his family with medical expenses.

Those who know Greyson describe him as outgoing, with a big heart, and great T-ball skills. Jeramy Simmons coached the Daphne East Elementary student in T-ball last Fall. "He's just the kid that you'd love to coach. I mean, he wants to learn. He's just an awesome kid. He's an outgoing kid. He's very sweet," said Simmons.  On Wednesday night, Simmons and other members of Daphne Youth Baseball donated nearly $20,000 to Greyson's mother Christina. The funds were collected during a fundraising tournament on Sunday, May 5.
