As Parker Strong says, "If you are not a Cubs fan, you need to be an Anthony Rizzo fan."

I couldn't agree more.

We all know I'm a White Sox Fan, and proud to be one, but that will not stop me from cheering on Anthony Rizzo and the Chicago Cubs.

Parker is a sweet little boy who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on August 13th of this year.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia is a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow with excess immature white blood cells according to

Cancer is a scary thing in it's own right. Parker is brave and strong and I have faith he will fight this battle.

Parker's mom reached out to Anthony Rizzo, one of her favorite players to tell him about Parker's fight against Leukemia.

To all of Parker's family surprise, he responded with a sweet and touching letter:

How sweet is that. Hats off to you Rizzo, way to be a stand-up guy. I'm sure your words of encouragement rang deep with Parker.
