Grand Junction - Just weeks after celebrating his 16th birthday, a Grand Junction teen is now in hospice care, diagnosed with inoperable brain tumors.

Despite the tragic disease, local musicians are rallying to honor their friend. Former Grand Junction high school student Jacob Hawkins has several inoperable brain tumors, and his family says he does not have much longer to live.

Home Grown Entertainment will host a brain cancer awareness concert in the Mesa Mall this Friday starting at 2:00 pm. The hip hop tribute will feature guest speakers and local performers.
