NEW PALESTINE, Ind. – Plans for a special ceremony to honor 8-year-old Brody Stephens will be released on Wednesday.

Stephens battled acute lymphoblastic leukemia twice – once as a baby and a second time in December 2015. And he beat it twice. But sadly he passed away at Riley Hospital on Saturday after suffering complications from a viral infection.

Family and friends are currently in the process of planning services and a “celebration of life” for Stephens. The media will meet with organizers at 3 p.m. Wednesday to discuss those plans.

That meeting will take place at New Palestine High School,

The Indiana Fraternal Order of Police Memorial Team will assist with the celebration of life memorial and the funeral.

“The team is humbled and honored to have been asked to assist with Brody’s services. Brody was a great young man who impacted many lives in his short stay on here on Earth,” said Chairman Joe Hamer.
