The Tri-Cities Community Came Together to Help Save a Young Life from Brain Cancer.

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash-- The Tri-Cities community came together today to help save a young life from brain cancer. The Pub in Kennewick held a fundraiser to help seven year-old Aidan Zaugg and his family fight the battle against cancer.

Aidan's mother, Tanya, had just given birth to a new baby when an MRI last week indicated the cancer may have come back. If doctor's find the cancer did return, the family will head to Arizona for treaments costing up to $75k.

"Its the most humbling thing you can experience to have all these people who don't even know you or your son to come out and say we are here praying and thinking about you," said Tanya Zaugg, Aidan's mother."

Two weeks ago, Aidan could move and speak cleary. His parents noticed he was developing symptoms that were similar to a stroke victim.

The Pub held a car wash, sold T-shirts, and had a silent auction to help raise money today.

"With this particular group of people, I just have to make one phone call and they are all here for me everytime whatever. We raised well $600 just like that," said Janis Clardy, leader of Ty's motorcycle group.

The Ty's Tuesday Night Motorcycle Group heard about the fundraiser on KNDU last night and decided to make a ride for Aidan. 20 rider's together raised the money and will continue to support Aidan.
