Lewisburg child with tumor inspires town to help

Posted: Updated:

Life's tragedies always seem hard to understand, and they are even more difficult when you're just 7 years old. But a group of second graders in Marshall County honored a classmate Monday who is facing a life-threatening illness.

Just a few months ago, Logan Reynolds was living his life to the fullest - fishing, drawing cartoons and laughing with his friends.

That all changed when doctors discovered an inoperable brain tumor, so his classmates and his entire community wanted to make the day Logan's day.

The little boy's spirit, smile and attitude has lifted Lewisburg and made an entire town take note.

"Whereas citizens of Marshall County recognize Logan Reynolds for his example of bravery for us all," said County Mayor Joe Boyd Liggett, reading from a proclamation.

Logan loves the color green, so his school friends got wore green and inflated 100 balloons to salute him.

They hoped Logan could be there with them when they launched those balloons at school. He was at home, too sick to travel, but was able to watch it all on his computer by using Skype.

And he loved it.

"He always says, 'Daddy that was very nice.' When he says that it's kind of his mark of approval, 'very nice,'" said father Michael Reynolds.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation sent Logan on a Disney cruise this summer. It was his first time in Florida and his first time to ever play on a beach.

A benefit for Logan and his family is set for Dec. 1, from 4-8 p.m. at the Church Street Church of Christ in Lewisburg.
