Social media goes #Blue4Ben

Ben Sauer
Ben Sauer, 4, began having headaches in January. The source of pain was found to be a pear-sized tumor.


Western New York is going blue in honor of Ben Sauer, the 4-year-old boy from Clarence who in January was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. 

Shades of blue illuminate local landmarks, including the Peace Bridge, Electric Tower and Niagara Falls, in solidarity with Ben, who's favorite color is blue. On Sunday, thousands of locals attended a Blue4Ben fundraiser benefitting Roswell Cancer Institute.

Blue is also taking over social media, along with the hashtag #Blue4Ben, to bring awareness of the boy and his family's struggle. The Sauers' supporters have taken to Twitter to share their photos and well wishes, as well as to spread the word about childhood cancer. See some of those tweets below:
