Saturday night was Vermont Day at Fenway Park. Vermont State Police trooper, Dan Marcellus, was there with his family to throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Nine months ago, the 14 year VSP trooper was diagnosed with a grade four brain cancer.

His speech was limited, so his wife Jessica spoke to Local 22 & Local 44 on his behalf.

"We're here and it's amazing. And it's pretty amazing to have Dan be able to take his little boy to his first Red Sox game," said Marcellus.

Marcellus adds recently, doctors told them they were not optimistic about Dan's prognosis, MyChamplainValley.com reports.

"He has been doing pretty well until a few weeks ago, and now I think we might be getting near the end soon," said Marcellus.
