WESTPORT - A foundation started by an Easton teenager who lost his battle with cancer will soon go national.

Michael Friedman lost his battle with cancer in October 2008 at the age of 19.

But before he died, he started his foundation to help other kids stuck in hospitals get iPods, portable DVD players and PSPs to help them take their mind off things, if only for a few hours.

Now his parents say they've partnered with the Ronald McDonald House in New York City to make Mikey's Way live on.
