HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg-area residents continue to show their support for a local child who's battling cancer. Tonight, some physicians and staff from Forrest General Hospital played in a benefit softball tournament at the Timberton Softball Complex for 8-year-old Zach Little. 

He's the Sumrall child who's been fighting brain cancer.  He had surgery to remove a tumor a couple of weeks ago and is currently undergoing radiation treatment at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. 

Family members say Zach is progressing well and will begin chemotherapy in a few weeks.
