TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Three-year-old Christian Risner died early Saturday morning after several months of battling cancer.

Christian’s family placed him on Hospice Care in August after he was diagnosed with Rhabdoid kidney cancer and being told he only had three months to live.

In September, the community of Lebo came together to throw an early Christmas celebration for Christian.

Kelly Fruend, the woman who organized the event, said she felt like God was telling her to do this for Christian’s family.

“I wanted the family to be able to make some amazing memories with their son in the time that they have left and to enjoy it and look back and see good times,” said Fruend.
