CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Indians honored a local breast cancer survivor on Mother's Day,
The baseball team made her an "Honorary Bat Girl" and she was part of the ceremonial first pitch on Mother's Day.
"I was humbled and honored, thrilled and yet very overwhelmed with the feeling that I'm going to be down on that field representing all the brave men and women who have fought breast cancer through the years," Julie Everett said.
Everett has been a huge Tribe fan her whole life. She braved a double mastectomy, and multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation.
Her husband, who nominated her, helped out on the mound, since Everett had surgery just last week.
