Adrian Peterson's son dies after battle with cancer : Saying prayers for AJ and the Peterson family

The son of former Chicago Bears running back Adrian Peterson died of a brain tumor Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

The Peterson family received an outpouring of support through GoFundMe and social media as they publicly documented their journey with young A.J. who suffered from an inoperable form of brain stem cancer.

A.J. was just six years old when he received his diagnosis.

Since stepping away from football, Adrian Peterson has devoted his life to helping others. The Adrian Peterson Foundation is a nonprofit foundation that helps needy children.

Over the last seven months, the internet community has returned the favor helping raise almost $40,000 to help the young boy with his treatments.
