MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Kiara and her siblings love the Halloween, everything from planning out each year’s costumes to gathering candy within their neighborhood with each other.

After a few tests, they learned that six-year-old Kiara had brain cancer.

Kiara’s dad Jeremiah Grindrod joined Action News 5′s Andrew Douglas at the digital desk to share more about their journey that eventually led them to St. Jude in Memphis.
