WEST READING, Pa. -

A Facebook page in honor of a little girl whose battle with cancer touched lives around the world has been hacked.

A family spokesperson says the Team Laney Facebook page was hacked Friday night.

Delaney Brown, 8, passed away on Christmas just days after thousands of carolers packed her street in West Reading to fulfill her dying wish.

The spokesperson says they were able to regain control of the page, but not before there was significant damage.

Over 150,000 people followed Laney's story on Facebook.

The family asks for continued support as they work with the proper authorities.
