Backwards: when life does a 180

Baseball, Middle school, Cancer Treatment- Repeat. Not your average 11 year old, Jude Hiley was diagnosed with bone cancer after developing a limp during baseball practice. There is a cure and there are options but if he wants to play sports then the doctor must deform his leg. For the love of the game, he decides to try for a radical cure that could enable him to keep playing baseball- one that requires amputating and rotating the leg 180 degrees. Jude is hopeful and determined to get back on the field.
