11-year-old cancer-fighting hero gets White House invite for Easter egg roll

Graham Trocke-Fowler's older brother had a class assignment to write about a hero. He decided to write about Graham, his courageous fight with cancer and his fundraising mission. The letter was sent to Washington, and the response was amazing.

Graham, 11, received a signed letter from President Obama and an invitation to the Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn. The president is recognizing Graham for his efforts to raise money for cancer research.

Graham has a rare form of melanoma and has had 14 surgeries. Over the past year, he's collected some $34,000 by making bracelets.
