LSC is rooting for Rex, too

There is a fine story by Nick Eatman on the Lone Conference Conference website about the battle being fought against cancer by Rex Fleming, the spunky, brave 8-year-old son of Lance Fleming, ACU's assistant director of athletics for media relations.

Rex has successfully cleared two big hurdles since being diagnosed late last fall while the Wildcat football team was marching to another Lone Star Conference South Division title. The Flemings were honored this week at the LSC Post-Season Basketball Tournament in Bartlesville, Okla.

Another story worth reading is by Brandon Tripp, sports editor of ACU's student newspaper, The Optimist.

And you can follow Lance’s account of Rex’s past few months at his CaringBridge page.

Rex is pictured here with one of his favorite Texas Rangers, Josh Hamilton, whom he recently met in Fort Worth while being being treated at Cooks Children’s Medical Center.

Lance wouldn’t have posted this, but you need to know anyway. The Flemings are in our prayers and admired by all of us who have been inspired by their faith and confidence in God’s healing.
