A professional wrestler is joining in the fight of a local athlete's battle with cancer.

Nathan Wood, 17, of Saranac, is undergoing chemotherapy at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington for Ewing's sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. The teen is also a star on his high school's wrestling team.

Professional wrestler Matt Morgan-- at 7-feet tall and 330 lbs.-- of TNA Impact Wrestling is lending his size and fame to help Nathan.

"You can tell already by the way he handles himself that this isn't something that's going to beat him; it's going to be one of those really cool stories at the end all be all, and I'm looking forward to being a big part of that for him," Morgan said.

Matt Morgan is holding a meet-and-greet Thursday night at the Old Navy in Plattsburgh from 6-8 p.m. where he'll be signing autographs as a benefit for Nathan. All of the proceeds will go to help Nathan's family pay for transportation and treatment.
