(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A GoFundMe page has been launched to assist the family of a teenager from Lawrenceburg.

Brady Gabbard is 14 years old and a member of the Lawrenceburg Tigers football team.

Weeks ago, he was feeling bad, had stomach pains, and was losing weight. After a visit to an area hospital, Brady was informed that he has stage 4 cancer.

A family friend launched the fundraiser on Thursday to assist the Gabbard family with medical expenses, and the response has been tremendous.  

To date, the fundraiser has raised $19,307 towards a $10,000 goal.
