Burnt Hills football coach Matt Shell beat stage 2 squamous mouth cancer in 2006, but it's not the most difficult thing he's ever gone through. That was when his young son Jacob was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma at the age of 8. 

Both fought cancer and won.

Now the Shell family is giving back to those who helped them during their cancer battles through the Shell Strong Foundation, which raises money for various organizations including the Melodies Center at Albany Med and Double H Ranch.  Ashley Miller has the story.
