Young Boy Dies Of Brain Cancer After 2 Year Fight

Posted: Updated:

We've been following the struggle of a young boy fighting an aggressive brain tumor for a couple of years, but lost the battle yesterday.

He died this Thursday morning. Ryder Herring was 6-years-old.

Doctors diagnosed Ryder with an aggressive brain tumor when he was 4-years-old.

Since then, we've been following Ryder and his family's journey for the past two years.

His story touched many hearts and people his family didn't know held fundraiser's to help them pay his medical bills.

Tonight, Photojournalist Rob Collett will talk about Ryder and his legacy.

A public viewing will be held at Dalton's Funeral Home in Collinsville Friday, March 22. The funeral will take place the next day at First Baptist Church in Skiatook at 10 a.m. Both are open to the public.

Condolences to Ryder's family can be left on their Facebook page.
