"It's A Very Cash Christmas" For A Visalia Boy Battling A Brain Tumor

Posted:
VISALIA, Calif. (KMPH) -

"A Very Cash Christmas" is a Christmas celebration like no other in honor of a very special little boy. Cash Shank of Visalia is battling a rare form of cancer, but it's not stopping him from celebrating the Holidays.

"It's amazing," says Cash's mom Megan Shank, "It's something that we'll never forget."

Santa Claus made the celebration a little brighter and so did a big, red fire truck.

"There have been tons of people that have tried to do whatever they can for Cash to just make him smile," adds Shank.

However, "A Very Cash Christmas" is bittersweet. Cash Shank is battling a brain tumor.

The 5–year old was diagnosed a little over a year ago. His parents took him to St. Jude's in Memphis where doctors were able to remove the tumor. After chemotherapy and radiation it looked like Cash was going to be okay, but the family just found out that the rare form of cancer is back.

"It's very hard, but we're trying to make memories that we'll remember," says Cash's mom, "That's what good about it."

Cash still has one more surprise. The "Make a Wish" foundation is sending Cash and his family to Disneyland Thursday.
