The city of Bowie is coming together to support the family of a 15-year-old freshman whose battle with cancer ended Tuesday night.
We first told you about Austin Cox last month when the Bowie basketball program raised $7,000 at a Hoops for Hope benefit in his honor.
Austin’s battle started last summer when he was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, also known as childhood leukemia.
Over the weekend Austin was in critical condition and he died Tuesday night.
Austin’s funeral will be Friday at 3 p.m. at Bowie High School.
The school will have early release and the school district will be providing transportation.
