It's words Jamie Bryant never wanted to hear.
"You don't ever want a doctor to sit there and say, your six-year-old daughter has cancer. You just don't want to hear that," said Jamie Bryant.
Doctors diagnosed Jamie's daughter, Harlie Bryant with a cancerous brain tumor the size of a softball about a year and a half ago, but that wasn't the only bad news after treatment wasn't working well.
"The tumor didn't shrink and a cyst had grown beside it. So, between the cyst and a tumor, half of her head is enclosed in something that's not supposed to be there," said Lisa Bryant, Harlie's mother.
However, today was a day to forget all the bad news for the Ohio County family, and join a new team, not made up of doctors, the WKU women's volleyball team.
"The one thing that I can promise you from the people sitting in this room is they'll be there forever, and they'll be your teammate forever," said WKU Volleyball Coach, Travis Hudson.
This is all a part of the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, where an athletic team officially adopts a child with brain tumors.
"Our mission is to improve the quality of life. I'm not going to raise billions of dollars for research. I'm about what can we do for these children today," said Denis Murphy, founder of Friends of Jaclyn.
It's a long journey hat's not complete, but what Harlie's battle is, is inspiring.
"She's my hero. It's amazing. It's very humbling to see her and how she acts. She's always smiling," said Lisa Bryant.
It's a smile that's spread across WKU and the team.
"It's not about the sport. It's about love, support, and friendship. You can't teach that. No professor at this university can teach what you guys are giving," said Murphy.
While chemo hasn't been completely successful for Harlie, the family plans to move onto a new treatment, proton radiation therapy, to help kill the tumor.
