At age 4, Reid Brewer, of Bushnell, Illinois, was diagnosed with a deadly form of childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma.

The cancer was widespread throughout his entire body.

On Sunday morning, 7-year-old Reid Brewer lost his two-year battle with cancer.

The Tri-State community now plans to come together to send its love and say goodbye to the superhero.

A prayer vigil will be held at the Bushnell VFW Park Sunday at 8 p.m. to remember Reid.

Friends say Reid's mission has always been to help others.

He frequently donated money to other local pediatric cancer families that are in need.

In March, the St. Baldrick's Foundation came to Macomb in support of Reid and other cancer fighters.
