BEFORE MIDDLETON FIREFIGHTERS TAKE THE FIELD THIS
THEY MET THE BOY.
THEY'RE FIGHTING FOR.
THEY'RE HONORING 4 YEAR OLD BLAKE RICKERT.
HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LEUKEMIA IN JANUARY.
HE'S THE FOCUS.
OF A CHARITY SOFTBALL GAME BETWEEN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT
AND THE MIDDLETON POLICE DEPARTMENT.
AFTER AGGRESSIVE TREATMENT, BLAKE'S MOM WAS HAPPY
TO SHARE TONIGHT.
RECENT TESTS SHOWED NO EVIDENCE OF ANY TUMORS.
JILL RCKERT, Blake's Mother: I just appreciate everything
even more, I mean I always loved him to pieces but
I think even after this, just having that experience,
that life experience of going through something so
traumatic with your child, you just realize how important
they are to you and your life, they're your world.
