Ben Sauer, the five year old boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumor just over a year ago passed away on Tuesday night. Ben and his courage really swept throughout Western New York as his mother started a website for family and friends. However the site, http://www.blue4ben.com/blog.html, took off which captured the attention of thousands who offered their prayers and shared their own stories. The community rallied behind the cause raising money for his parents, Andy and Mindy Sauer, as they prayed for a miracle.
I fully expect #Blue4Ben to be trending on twitter tonight as this story was captivated all throughout the country. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Sauer family.
