MACON, Ga. — After spending months in Tennessee receiving cancer treatment, the Macon community welcomed Jackson Hall back home Sunday with cheers and well wishes.
Hall was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma at the age of 11. He began treatment in June at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.
13WMAZ first reported on Hall then when his little league team rallied around him and started a GoFundMe to raise money for chemotherapy and other needed expenses.
They raised $31,685 in total. Their original goal was $15,000.
"I just want to thank everybody for all of the love and support, and we are just grateful, and we ask for lots of prayers for our special little boy. He is just a God-send and we've been inundated with just love and support from all over the community," said his mother, Aimee Hall, about the GoFundMe.
