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.

    The Mississippi State Department of Health reported there are now 12 cases of West Nile Virus in our state Thursday morning. Although, every case is serious, that number pales in comparison, to the 247 cases in 2012. Still, you have to put a human face onto these figures to really know what this virus is capable of doing.
