An event Saturday morning in Middleton could positively impact more than 10,000 children with cancer in the United States.

"You never expect to hear those words spoken to you and when they are, it just stops your whole world," explains Brinley?s mother, Heidi Hicks, of Brinley's initial diagnosis.
