As journalists, we sometimes encounter stories that challenge our job of being objective. The spirit of a Minneapolis girl fighting brain cancer drew Frank Vascellaro, Amelia Santaniello, Lindsey Seavert and many other WCCO staffers in and made it difficult to be very objective at all. Eight-year-old Gracie Joles was diagnosed with a rare and incurable brain tumor last year, and on Wednesday her battle with cancer ended. Watch as Frank, Amelia and Lindsey share her story and their experience with a girl who has touched their hearts.
