WCPO: HEBRON, Ky. — Sometimes the race doesn’t last as long as it could, and the finish line seems to come too soon.
Avid car fan Gavin Ward, 16, of Hebron, Kentucky died Friday morning. He was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare form of inoperable brain cancer that gained recognition in the Cincinnati area through the fundraising efforts of Lauren Hill, in 2019.
“That’s the hardest part. Two days ago he was revving cars. Bombing Mustangs. Having a good time,” Cars and Candy Foundation founder David Whitman said.
