Bowling a perfect game is one of the most impressive feats in all of sports. Only a small number of bowlers have done so, which makes Sam Grayston's accomplishment so impressive. Not only is he 10 years old, but he also receives daily treatment for cystic fibrosis, according to ABC News.
Grayston, a Laguna Beach, California, resident, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was an infant. Despite having to undergo treatment each night to clear mucus from his lungs, Grayston has excelled in a number of sports including golf and baseball. However, it was last week where his prowess at the bowling alley shone through.
"Sam is an inspiration," his mother Laurie told the news source. "He never complains and he is always in a good mood. He is just an all around amazing boy."
His athletic skills are especially impressive given the prognosis he was given by doctors when he was younger. He had to use a feeding tube for the first nine months of his life and therapists wondered whether he'd be able to sit up on his own, let alone walk.
Grayston's story may help other families dealing with the condition. According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, about 30,000 children in the United States have the disease.
