TEMPLE (December 26, 2013) Seven-year-old Jayln Martin, of Temple, lost her battle with brain cancer on Christmas Eve.

A viewing will be held Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Temple Bible Church in Temple.

A funeral will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday also at Temple Bible Church in Temple.

A candlelight vigil was held in Jayln's memory Thursday evening.

Jayln was diagnosed with stage-4 brain cancer in February after she complained of headaches.

Her parents, Nick and Kristi Martin, were told she had only about six months to live.

In October, her health began to decline and she wished for a winter wonderland.

So, the community of Temple came together to bring Jayln an early Christmas.

Jayln's mother, Kristi, said she was very excited to be one of the first kids Santa visited this year.
