Worthington Kilbourne Basketball Player, Cancer Survivor Gets Dream ‘Man Cave’


A local teenager and basketball player got a big surprise after surviving a battle with cancer.

Worthington Kilbourne High School student Grayson Biglin returned to the basketball court on Feb. 8 after defeating testicular cancer.

To be back on the basketball court was a dream come true for the sophomore, but his dreams were only beginning.

When Biglin went with his family to the BIG Wish gala on Saturday night, put on by the Make A Wish Foundation, he didn’t think much of it. 

"I was expecting to sit down listen to some kids’ stories and eat dinner," he said.

 However, about 15 minutes in, Biglin was called to the stage to celebrate his triumph over testicular cancer.

Mid-way through, a video began to play of his story, then he realized that his dream of having a man cave in his basement had come true. 

"It was a complete shock, because I hadn't thought about it in a while, we talked about it a month or two ago," he said.

With the help of his friends and their sworn secrecy, Biglin’s man cave came to life. 

He left the gala to see his new man cave in a stretch limo, and when he arrived at home, a party was in store.

Biglin finally got to see his new confines: weights, autographed jerseys, a big screen TV.

Anything Biglin could have wanted. 

"I usually come down an hour, hour and half but maybe I'll come down here all day depending on how long I'm going to be here," he said.

With the help of friends, and there sworn secrecy, Biglin had his man cave.

Biglin’s mother, Dina, said from Sunday afternoon until about 11:30 last night, her son was in the basement with friends, but school of course forced him out.
