A 12-year-old Windsor girl has died.

Layla Girard passed away late Monday afternoon after a battle with brain cancer.

She was in the care of hospice.

Girard was diagnosed with cancer in October 2018.

Her family has been providing updates on a Facebook group page called "Layla's Army."

Last month, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau had a video call with the young girl and her family.

The family wants the federal government to provide additional funding for childhood cancer research.
