5-year-old cancer survivor scores TD at Browns practice (Video)

5-year-old cancer survivor dresses up in Browns uniform
The Cleveland Browns orchestrated a special moment during Saturday night's "Family Night" practice at FirstEnergy Stadium by dressing up 5-year-old cancer survivor Ryan Encinas in uniform and inviting him onto the field to join the team.

Encinas lined up with the offense, took the handoff from quarterback Brandon Weeden and followed running back Trent Richardson down the field for a 40-yard touchdown that fans will not soon forget.

Encinas was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of lung cancer (Pleuropulmonary Blastoma, or PPB) at age 3 and still receives full-body scans every three months because of the 80 percent recurrence rate. Encinas was referred to the Browns by The Littlest Heroes, a group which works with local families who have children diagnosed with cancer. A great job by everyone involved in making this happen.
