Jacob Majors was recently featured on KPLC 7 News Hometown Hero segment and rightfully so.  Being born with cerebral palsy the 28-year old hasn't allowed his disability stop him from living his dream or playing his favorite sport, basketball.

According to his brother Carlos Majors, uncle David Singleton and aunt Velvet Chretien, Jacob's always been surrounded by love and they are very proud of him.  In spite of suffering the loss of his mother and not having his father playing an active role in his life, he's brothers and extended family always made sure he was taken care of.

Let Jacob Majors' story serve as an example to never give up, not matter what cards you are dealt in life.  If you can dream it, you can achieve it.  KPLC 7 News reports, for the second time in a row, he got an opportunity to play in the NBA Cares Special Olympics Unified Basketball game at New York's famous Madison Square Garden.
