MARSHALL, Mo. — Porch lights across Missouri, and even the United States, are lit up Tuesday night for a sick Marshall boy.

Ayden Wright is a sixth grader preparing for his first round of chemotherapy on Wednesday to treat pancreatic and liver cancer.

The town of Marshall is rallying around Ayden, encouraging people to light up their porch lights Tuesday to start his fight off right.

You can post pictures of your porch light on his Facebook page, which you can find at this link.
