Gray ribbons for gray matter: Brain cancer awareness

Gray ribbons for gray matter: Brain cancer awareness »Play Video
PASCO, Wash. -- KEPR Anchors wore gray ribbons on May 1st to kick off brain cancer awareness month.

Brain cancer is rare, but it's no less devastating. About 23,00 people will be diagnosed this year. Less than half will make it to remission.

Longtime viewers may remember two local boys who died from the same rare brain cancer. Cooper Larson died at four and Aidan Zaugg died at seven. Both boys were given just months to live. They each made it more than a year past diagnosis, but both lost their battle.

We remember those boys and the rest of those fighting: wearing gray for the gray matter, during the month of May.
