In late 2016, 5-year-old Emmett Zorr had a tumor removed from his face.

This wasn't the first time Zorr has been through this.

When Emmett was 3-years-old he was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma after a tumor was found on his face.

During the 2016-2017 basketball season Zorr was named the honorary team captain of the Harrisburg High School boys basketball team.
