SALINE COUNTY - Thousands of local students and teachers from across Southern Illinois and even in surrounding states wore the color blue today to support a local grade schooler battling cancer.

Graham Hosman is a first grader at Eldorado School District in Saline County. Hosman is also the grandson of Massac County’s basketball coach, and is battling cancer for the second time. 

Graham's family is asking for the public's continued support, thoughts, and prayers as Hosman continues his battle.
