Going The Extra Miley

We all have friends, people we work with or have frequent interaction with at the places we frequent. Then we have best friends. We have best friends in high school or in college, but sadly as we grow older most of us grow apart from those best friends as life just sort of gets in the way as we live it everyday. But, for a lucky few we are able to keep those childhood relationships throughout our adult life. Shockingly, what if one day you found out that your best friend had brain cancer? What would you say? What would you do? More importantly, how would you help?

Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Wade Miley is currently faced with this situation. His best friend Johnnie Santangelo is his best, and he has brain cancer. But Wade and Johnnie have decided to fight this disease head on by stepping up to the plate and knocking one over the wall in the deepest part of the park!
