Lauren Hill got her own Wheaties box

Lauren Hill recently had her dream come true when she played in her first college basketball game for Mount St. Joseph University this past Sunday.

Hill was diagnosed with DIPGa form of brain cancerlast November. Doctors said she has an inoperable brain tumor and likely won’t live past December. She is now trying to raise money and awareness to help fight the disease.

Wheaties recently did its part and came through with an amazing gesture. They honored Hill by putting her on the front of a cereal box to commemorate the basketball game she played in.

Hill joins the likes of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Babe Ruth and other great athletes who have been featured on the front of Wheaties boxes.
