STOW, OH (WOIO) -

A Stow girl battling cancer raises thousands of dollars for Akron Children's Hospital. 

Leah Merriman, 11, has an inoperable tumor in her brain stem. She created a BraveStrongGirl T-shirt to raise awareness and money for child cancer research. 

She thought they might sell $4,000 worth. They're well over $6,000 as of Thursday. T-shirts can be purchased through Sunday. $8 of every T-shirt ($16.50) goes right to the Akron Children's Hospital.
