PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas – The Prairie View A&M community and Houston rapper "Trae Tha Truth" are helping support a student who's in need of a lifesaving surgery.

Dyanna Tucker, 19, is in the first year of her nursing undergraduate studies at Prairie View A&M University.

In December, Tucker was rushed to the emergency room where doctors discovered a cyst had formed in the center of her brain.

To help raise money for medical bills, Tucker's mother, owner of Blessties Boutique in Cypress, started selling hoodies for her cause.
