5-year-old battles DIPG with a smile

ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) - Lakemont residents joined together to honor a 5-year-old resident who is battling a brain tumor.

Brooklyn Smith was recently diagnosed with DIPG on Jan. 11, a week after her fifth birthday. It is the same inoperable cancerous tumor which Lauren Hill brought to national attention.

Brooklyn's uncle says she loves princesses, Barbie's, anything pink and her dog Lulu.

Pink ribbons are tired to trees and lamppost throughout the Lakemont Community to make Brooklyn smile while she receives treatment.

There is a gofundme page to help Brooklyn's parents with the expenses.
