What an amazing community we live in. Last night (Dec. 16) Grand Junction came together to honor one of their own, 13-year-old Delaney Clements, who is battling cancer. Check out the photos from last night's tree lighting in Lincoln Park.

Hundreds of Grand Junction's residents crowded together at Lincoln Park to light up a Christmas tree in purple to honor Delaney.

Even Delaney made it out in the freezing cold thanks to the Grand Junction Fire Department.

Delaney came back to Grand Junction from Denver on Wednesday just before the tree lighting and will soon be entering home hospice care.
