(WLWT) An Ohio neighborhood came together to celebrate Christmas early this weekend for a 2-year-old boy battling brain cancer.

Brody Allen’s story is going viral after people learned about his tumors and wanted to help him enjoy the time he has left.

Neighbors of Brody and his family turned the street into winter wonderland, putting up lights to help 2-year-old celebrate early this year.

People from all over world have been sending their best wishes.
