Former Red Sox Pitcher Bill Monbouquette Fought, Beat Cancer With Help of Jimmy Fund (Video)

In 1962, right-hander Bill Monbouquette achieved a feat that has only been accomplished 18 times in Red Sox history, tossing a no-hitter in a 1-0 win over the White Sox.

Monbouquette, a Medford, Mass., native, was a star for Boston in the early 1960s while continuing to give back to his community. He regularly volunteered at the Jimmy Fund — at the urging of friend and teammate Ted Williams — but Monbouquette never could have predicted that the organization he spent so much time helping would end up playing a large role in saving his life.

Check out Monbouquette’s inspiring story in the video above.
