Brennan Daigle loses battle with cancer


Hearts are heavy Thursday morning in southwest Louisiana as the news of Brennan Daigle's death spread throughout the community.

Daigle died Thursday around 2:15 a.m. The Westlake boy had been battling pediatric brain cancer. Daigle's inspirational story of struggle to beat the odds touched many lives all over the world.

KPLC met him a few months ago when a dream of his to attend high school came true. Then, a couple months later, Brennan's Brigade rolled into town, including a pink camo military truck, followed by several fire trucks.

In honor of Brennan and out of support for the family, we're told a candlelight vigil was held Wednesday night.
