Hundreds in Halifax Co. Attend Event Supporting Young Cancer Patient

Halifax Co., VA - A Halifax County boy fighting cancer received lots of support at a benefit over the weekend.

Trevant Coleman, 9, was presented with a plaque from Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark. The Sheriff made Trevant an honorary deputy at the event.

Nearly 500 people came to show their support.

Several musical church groups performed.

Family and friends say they raised about $2,700.

Trevant, who's been fighting an inoperable brain tumor since last year, was unable to attend. He's been in the hospital for several days but his mother says he should be going home soon.
