Eleven-year-old Eric Prochaska never seems to stop moving. 

"Eric has the energy of twelve kids combined," said his mother, Carrie. 

This spitfire has to expel his extra energy somehow, so he does it on the basketball court. On the JV basketball court, in fact. As a sixth grader. 

Eric's undeniable skill in the sport is extremely impressive. But he has over much more than other kids his age, but not only in athletics.

In December 2016, Eric was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, an extremely rare form of cancer with which only 100 kids in the world are diagnosed. 

More than thirty percent of children with Eric's diagnosis do not make it. 

Eric didn't just beat those odds – he slam dunked them.
