Anthony’s brothers are on his team and is prayed for before every game and practice. Setsma tells me the repetition has touched Grant’s heart,” said the story.”It brings me to tears..it makes me weep to have somebody, that he, as a 7 year old has shown more hope that in most adults,” Setsma says. More than 30 people packed Zio’s Pizzeria in downtown Bradenton Saturday afternoon. Zio’s donated all the pies for the party. Setsma tells me the money collected will go a long way.”
