Tucker under went surgery to remove an egg sized tumor from his throat. Tucker is currently recovering at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and is expected to be released from the hospital sometime in June. The hospital said that Tucker was “Braver than Brave” due to his positive attitude and wanting to leave the hospital the day after his surgery to play sports with his friends. The DWLL entered a Braver than Brave team in the tournament to show support for Tucker Williams and the Williams family.
