MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are making national headlines for beating a record, only this record, doesn't necessarily have to do with baseball.

More than 11,000, that's how many likes the Fierce Fallon Facebook page has and it continues to climb with The Myrtle Beach Pelicans' support.

What's not to "like?" Fallon Emery, you can call her Fierce Fallon, is an inspiration to all. At just ten years old she is fighting brain cancer, a fight every day, for her life.

"She's amazing, I don't know its her, it's all in her, I think it's that red hair, it's that fiery personality, nothing will get her down," said Fallon's mom Melanie Emery.

It's your support keeping her strong. The recent outpouring of love, with the push on facebook by the Myrtle Beach Pelicans is teaching Fallon, anything is possible

"Fallon doesn't get a lot of socialization now you know because she's sick, and she can pick up germs so for her, social media and things like this, you know to have 11,000 'likes' she's like 'oh my God, all these people love me,'" her mother said.

She has a new goal there's a new number she wants to see - 33,333. Help her get there: https://www.facebook.com/fiercefallon

Fierce Fallon is one major part of The Pelicans, huge effort to end cancer.

Thursday is Prostate Cancer Awareness Night, the fourth night in the five-night, "Strike Out Cancer Series," by the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. It features an in-game prostate exam, to bring awareness to Prostate Cancer, the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the U.S.

General Manager Andy Milovich will undergo the exam on the field, while singing, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." With 6,000 people expected at the ball park, Thursday and national attention, he hopes this will create a victory better than any game.

"If one child has the opportunity to grow up and play catch with their father as a result of detecting a prostate cancer awareness than this is a win," said Milovich.

Again, the catch, all because you showed support for Fierce Fallon; 10-thousand likes on hr facebook page is all it took to make it all happen.

"I'm not a doctor but feeling good and feeling positive is half the battle and we want to do what we can to lift her spirits," Milovich said.

There are more ways you can help Fallon in her fight against cancer. There will be a silent auction at the Pelicans Coaches vs Cancer event on August 2. To buy tickets for the game: https://www.facebook.com/fiercefallon/app_329898510397252
