MCADOO, Pa. -- On Friday, Coach Karmonick, along with his players from the McAdoo Mustangs basketball team, awarded Gavin Penkala as an honorary member of their team.
In early February, Gavin was diagnosed with having Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer.
Prior to the diagnoses, a tumor was found in him.
Gavin would have a tube inserted into his chest for chemotherapy.
His one eye would be covered with a patch after a biopsy was performed to see the tumor.
He was hooked up on ivy, and had two incisions in his chest that are now stitched and glued (from putting the tube in for chemo).
He also had had a biopsy on his spine.
