LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A young man battling brain cancer who wanted to be a firefighter for a day has died.

10-year-old Kevin Olguin was highlighted in a WHAS story last year when he became firefighter for a day thanks to the Jeffersontown Fire Department.

Olguin had been battling terminal brain cancer since November 2011.

Firefighters had also set up a fund to help pay for some of Olguin’s medical expenses.
