Swimmers Support Brain Cancer Patient

WILKES-BARRE — A swim meet in Wilkes-Barre turned into a show of support for a boy battling cancer.

Nathan Tindell, 12, hit the water on Sunday for the first time since being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2012.

He has undergone two surgeries and radiation treatment.

Swimmers taking part in the 39th Annual Saint Patrick’s Invitational at the YMCA in Wilkes-Barre swam for Nathan.

    Who is coaching these kids to be not only good swimmers but instilling in them a sense of compassion, team spirit and caring toward each other? Kudos to the Y for hiring such talent.

    Way to go Nathan! He had two surgeries and radiation and at the end of the interview he says how lucky he is and that he has a great life. The world needs more people like You. So inspiring.
