One of Vicksburg’s tiniest heroes celebrated his sixth birthday in a big way.
Brody Larry took a break from fighting his cancer Tuesday to celebrate his birthday. Many of his friends at the Vicksburg Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Office and Vicksburg and Warren County fire departments joined the parade of family and friends to honor him on his special day.
The Make A Wish Foundation went a step further to make Brody’s birthday a memorable one by arranging a very special appearance from his hero, Spiderman.
Make A Wish also gifted Brody an Amazon shopping spree, where he picked out a Spiderman themed bedroom makeover set, an ATV and a PlayStation 5.
Brody is fighting a very rare and aggressive form of brain cancer, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, and has been receiving treatment at St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
Brody’s mother has left the workforce and dedicated herself to caring for Brody and getting him the treatments he needs. The family has set up a Go Fund Me account for anyone who wishes to contribute.
