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.
