Walk for 4-year-old with a brain tumor

Today, the streets in Elkhorn City were lined with more than 400 purple shirts where people walked for a 4-year-old little girl with a brain tumor.

Aubree Grace is one of two sets of twins, 4 years old, and just about makes everyone fall in love with her.

What separates her from the rest is the brain tumor doctors found when she was 4 months old.

That is why more than 400 people came together in Elkhorn City all walking for a cure.

"We've had a lot of good times, but we've had a few sad times too, but we know God has a plan for her and we know He's in control," said Brandi Fuller, Aubree Grace's mother.

The point of the walk is not only to help with their medical expenses but to give this family the support they need for their little girl.

With chemo treatments at UK Children's Hospital every week, the Fuller family is consumed with Aubree Grace's health.

"I could see it driving some people apart, but it's made us stronger. And as you can see, it's made everybody stronger around her," said Chad Fuller, Aubree Grace's father.

Her smile and love for others keeps everyone else going.

"I'm so humbled to think this many people care. And I love each and every one of them. And everybody here holds a special place in my heart," said Brandi Fuller.

And this little red head already has the hearts of hundreds.

Aubree Grace's most recent MRI showed her tumor shrunk.

Her family hopes doctors can perform surgery soon removing the tumor.
