Kansas boy whose town gave him a special Christmas dies

In this Sept. 10, 2017 photo from video provided by WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kan., 3-year-old Christian Risner sits on Santa’s lap in Lebo, Kan. Risner, whose fight with cancer prompted his small southern Kansas hometown to celebrate Christmas in September has died. He loved Christmas, so Lebo, a town of about 940 people, put on a special celebration with Santa, a horse-drawn sleigh and homes throughout the town decorated for the holiday. Christian was diagnosed with Rhabdoid kidney cancer in April 2016. (WIBW-TV via AP)
