ERLANGER, Ky. (WKRC) - After battling a form of brain cancer called DIPG, 6-year-old Brooklyn Smith of Erlanger passed away Thursday, April 27.

Brooklyn was on an experimental treatment, which showed some progress. The treatment was a product of the research money raised by Lauren Hill.

The visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. at Hebron Lutheran Church on Monday, May 1.
