CLEVELAND– A 13-year-old Wayne County boy’s dream came true Wednesday night when he met LeBron James.

Last month, Joey Leininger, an eighth grader at Norwayne Elementary School in Creston, was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer. Less than 200 people are diagnosed with fibrolamellar heptocellular carcinoma each year.

On Sunday, Joey explained his condition to Wayne County Sheriff’s Capt. Doug Hunter. He said the cancer is typically treated with surgery, but that is not an option.
