I just heard about the heartwarming story of Dakota Dowd, who's Mother is stricken with cancer. The LPGA gave a sponsor's exemption to Dakota to allow her to play in this weekend's Ginn Clubs and Resorts Open in Orlando, in order to allow her Mother to watch her play in the LPGA.

This is Dakoda Dowd's moment to shine. The 13-year-old golf prodigy is playing in her very first professional tournament. It's a dream come true not only for Dakoda, but for her mother, Kelly Jo Dowd, who is suffering from cancer.

Watching her daughter's debut at the Ginn Clubs & Resorts Open outside of Orlando, Fla., Kelly Jo Dowd could hardly contain her excitement.

For a little while, dark reality - terminal cancer in her hip and liver - was forgotten, replaced by the thrill of seeing her daughter compete against the best female players in the world.
