Last night, the Paso Robles community rallied behind a student who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Braden Waterman was recently diagnosed--and Paso Robles high school and community wanted to show their support for the student-athlete.

They did that by having a "white out" at last night's Paso Robles high school boys basketball game, where attendees wore white shirts to show support for Braden.

It's gestures like that that go a long way, said Braden's parents.

"For us it just means everything that during a really hard time for our family that the whole community has really come out to just honor our son and love him and lift him up--and just show him how special he means to the community; and I know this is going to help him with his recovery from this," Michelle Waterman said.

All snack bar proceeds from last night's game went to the Waterman family.
