Darla Holloway's performance of 'God Bless America' during the seventh inning stretch.There were plenty of highlights from Tuesday night's 13-2 win for the Red Sox over the Baltimore Orioles, but arguably none more special than
Darla, a four-year-old girl from Stoughton, is fighting acute lymphoblastic leukemia. She was diagnosed in April of 2012, when she was just two-years old.
Her older sister, Donyea Holloway, who will be a senior at Stoughton High School, held her up to the microphone, as she sang (click here to watch Darla's performance). Darla was also joined on field by her mother, Sherelle, and older brother Daryl.
Prior to her singing during the seventh inning stretch, Darla was part of the Jimmy Fund Chorus, which performed the National Anthem before the start of Tuesday's game.
Darla and Sherelle were also featured on WEEI's Mut and Merloni show earlier on Tuesday, the first day of the annual two-day WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon.
Sherelle told Mut and Merloni that Darla is a year and four months into a two-year treatment through the Dana Farber. Darla has a treatable form of leukemia, Sherelle said.
"I thank God for all the research and everything that's been going on because without it, past history there wasn't a cure. People have died from it, but there are treatments now so I really thank God for that," she said.
"It's bearable. She's dealing with it. We're dealing with it. Happier now that we know what we have to deal with...she's doing really good, as you can see."
