A local family is fighting for their 10-year-old daughter's life, but they are not alone in the battle.

Just last week, the Nicholas family learned their daughter Aubreigh has an aggressive form of brain cancer. Since then, the community has been rallying by her side.

Aubreigh Nicholas is the 10-year-old catching the eyes and hearts hundreds tonight taking center field and center focus for MGM high schools' homecoming game.

The adorable 5th grader excels as a student and a dancer and now she has her own personal army.

Aubreigh's Army is the nickname for the thousands of people ready to fight by her side after she was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG, a rare form of brain cancer.

"We all wanted to come together and do something for her the kids the football team," homecoming coordinator Angela Salamone said. "We all just kind of all come up with the idea lets make her homecoming captain we also want to make her honorary homecoming queen tonight."

Tonight the brave queen serves as an inspiration for us all, gracefully leading down the field, leading by example of true strength and perseverance.

"She'll forever be an honorary Viking"one student said.

Students spent their homecoming week rallying behind Aubreigh buying bracelets and ribbons showing her she's not alone in this fight.

"We are with them we are praying, its' just kind of a team effort on their end"
