5-Year-Old Battling Cancer Gets Thrill of a Lifetime as Patriots Ball Boy

Jack Curran, 5, of Kingston is battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia but on Monday he received the thrill of a lifetime as the New England Patriots ball boy.

When Kingston resident Jack Curran was four years old, he was diagnosed with Acut Lymphoblastic Leukemia and spent six weeks receiving his initial medical care at Children’s Hospital in Boston.

A year later, Curran still suffers from Leukemia and receives treatment through the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber but on Monday, he received the thrill of a lifetime when he served as the New England Patriots ball boy during the team's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Gillette Stadium on Monday Night Football.

Curran and his family – mom Jennifer, dad Brett, and brother Liam – were present for Jack's experience and were able to watch the game from club seats provided by Cross Insurance.

You can view photos of Curran's experience in the gallery above.
