Almost exactly a year after discovering a brain tumor. An Ashland middle-school student is getting some extra support.
That support is coming from Alex Shepherd's own classmates.
The 12-year-old's life was changed forever about a year ago. He had a seizure that led to the discovery of a brain tumor. It's meant chemotherapy, radiation and four brain surgeries.
It was something doctors didn't think he would be able to do again. An exception, his classmates are helping Alex become. "Some of them I don't even know, and they still support me" said Alex.
