LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - The Harlem Globetrotters are headed to the Olympic Center in Lake Placid on Wednesday night, and they plan to fulfill the dreams of a fourth-grade girl who’s fighting brain cancer.

Before they play the World Allstars, the Globetrotters will roll out the red carpet for 10-year-old Gracee Jewtraw, of Saranac Lake. She’ll be presented with an official Harlem Globetrotters’ game jersey, and she and her brother, Noah, will watch the game from the team’s bench.

For the past year, Gracee, who is a huge basketball fan, has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer and it had been in remission, but recently a new and different form of cancer was discovered.
