An Akron train club helped Christmas come early this year for a young man and his family.

Elijah Harper, 12, is a seventh grader at Hyre Middle School in Akron and the second oldest of three brothers. In June 2015, he was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. Pepin Harper, his mother, explained that a cancerous tumor about the size of a golf ball was pressing against Elijah’s brain stem. After it was removed, he continued treatment for the next 12 months to make sure no other cancerous cells developed. Elijah has been free of cancer for four years.
