An Illinois grandma fought a long battle with cancer, and in the last few weeks of her life, she got a special, unexpected gift from her grandson.
19-year-old Zach Seavers is a baseball player for Lewis and Clark Community College and had a very close relationship with his grandmother Marilyn Seavers. He visited her last month when she was very ill. Marilyn told Zach she was sad that she had never gotten to see him play in person because she was always too sick to leave her home.
So at the end of his last visit he told her, "See you at the game tomorrow." What Marilyn didn't know is that she was actually going to get to see her grandson pitch the next day because Zach arranged for his team to play a game in her backyard.
The players got together to create a makeshift baseball field in her yard and then played a mock game while Marilyn watched from the window of her bedroom. Zach says, "I could see into her bedroom window, and there were smiles all around."
Marilyn passed away two weeks later.
