      THE FIGHTER: WILLIE THOMPSON TAKES ON HODGKINS DISEASE...WITH AN ASSIST FROM HIS FRIENDS

      We start tonight with the story of an old friend, a familiar face to those who follow Tri State Football, and one of the toughest kids I've ever known now locked in the biggest fight of his life.

      Former Carthage All State Defensive End and Illinois College All Conference standout Willie Thompson is battling back after being diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease. Today, his friends and former teammates staged an impromptu reunion in Springfield to raise money for his medical bills...

      And KHQA was there.
