Fluvanna County raised money Tuesday for a seven-year-old boy with an inoperable brain tumor.

Members of local Fluvanna businesses put on a 'Fun Fest' to bring out families.
The boy, Ethan MacGregor and his family just found out about his tumor in the end of May.

Doctors say if they operate, they risk leaving him blind or paralyzed because of the location of the tumor along his spine near the brain.

Ethan is a happy, busy child, the only way you would know he is sick is from his brain scans.

He cannot undergo chemotherapy yet. Children can only go through it once or twice because their immune systems are not strong enough yet.
Doctors want to wait until he is older to take that measure.

If you would like to donate to Ethan's family, there is an account in their name at Union Bank & Trust.
Just say you're there to donate to Ethan MacGregor.

Or, you can visit Ethan's Website to learn more.
