Video: Rice embraces a cancer-stricken young fan

We don't do a lot of feel-good stories here on Dr. Saturday, but every once in awhile, one falls into our laps that makes us smile and even get a little misty-eyed.

Meet 6-year-old Ross Keeler, a young man from New Mexico who is in remission from medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. He's the newest fan of the Rice football team.

Keeler was receiving treatment at the Texas Children's Medical Center across the street from the Rice campus when he and his father decided to attend a football practice. Coach David Bailiff learned of Keeler's condition and immediately took to him, as did the entire football team.

Rice did a fantastic piece about Keeler and his relationship with the team. It's just a little feel good for a Wednesday evening.
