SILVER LAKE, Kan. — A brave little girl lost her battle with cancer Monday night.

FOX 4 first introduced you to Parker Monhollon of Silver Lake, Kan., early last year when she was eight-years-old and diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma, a disease that causes highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors.

Monday night her mom posted on the Facebook page “Parker Loves Life” that the little girl’s fight ended at 7:55 p.m.

Her family promises her legacy will live on.
