Twitter Kenton Doust

Kenton Doust is a diehard Vancouver Whitecaps fan and a cancer survivor. Now, the 13-year-old is also in a video game.

EA Sports is honoring the teenager for his bravery by featuring Doust as a star striker in FIFA 17.



Last year, doctors discovered three brain tumors in Doust's brain, and after undergoing 25 sessions of chemotherapy, he got news that he was cancer free.

The Whitecaps have been engaging with Doust for months, and thanks to EA Sports, he is being recognized around the world.
