OKLAHOMA CITY -- A basketball autographed by Oklahoma City Thunder players will be auctioned off, and proceeds will benefit a two-year-old Oklahoma Chickasha girl with cancer.
The ball was signed during the team's first NBA basketball playoff series, and will be auctioned on eBay, starting May 13 for 10 days.
All proceeds from this auction will go to http://www.ladybughugs.org/, a benefit fund for Audri King. Two-year old Audri was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. She has already been through several rounds of chemotherapy at OU Children's Hospital and will continue treatment for a year.
