Parma boy battling brain cancer passes away

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - An 11-year-old Parma boy who has been fighting back against brain cancer the last three years has passed away.

According to the family, Gage Driskell passed away Thursday morning in the arms of his parents.

KBOI 2 News first met Gage in 2011 when he was eight-years-old.

The Parma community rallied around him as he spent months in the hospital getting a tumor removed.

Since then, he had more surgeries, some that meant going out-of-state for treatment.
