A year ago, Avery Smith of Concord threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park in Boston as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Night on Sept. 13, 2018. At the time, Avery was a kindergartner at Christa McAuliffe School and a year into her battle with leukemia. She was back on the field at Fenway on Saturday with her family before the game against the New York Yankees as the Red Sox honored Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, but now, “Avery has now completed her cancer treatment protocol, is done with her daily chemo treatments and is doing great,” according to her father, Chris Smith.
