The Sequim community is rallying to help three-year-old Brody Neal who is battling brain cancer.

Brody began treatment Oct. 8, at Seattle Children's receiving chemotherapy and radiation five days a week while living with his mom Alicia Neal and newborn sister Myha near the hospital. His father Shane and Taylor, Brody's one-year old sister, remain in Sequim during the week and commute on the weekends to Seattle.

His treatment is expected to last six months.

Friends and family have organized two events this weekend to help the Neal family pay medical expenses.
