Yesterday morning, Scout.com's Brandon Huffman and his family lived out every parent's worst nightmare when they announced that his seven-year-old daughter Avery had passed away from complications of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a yet-incurable brain cancer usually affecting children. Huffman and the #AveryStrong hashtag became one of the Pacific Northwest's most well-known stories in the sports world in 2015, with recent efforts even made by Dan Rubenstein and Ty Hildenbrandt of The Solid Verbal to raise money for DIPG research via the sale of T-shirts.
