Today is Louisiana Gray Day, the statewide Brain Cancer Awareness day.
Mona Leingang petitioned the first annual "Louisiana Gray Day" in honor of her late husband, Gary Leingang who passed of brain cancer in 2010.
Mona is an ambassador of the Voices Against Brain Cancer organization, a group dedicated to finding a cure for brain cancer and brain tumors by spreading awareness, supporting the families of those affected and advancing scientific research.
The Leingang family along with the organization is asking Louisiana residents to help raise awareness by wearing gray, donate or show support through social media accounts.
