A Mobile girl who continues to fight a rare form of brain cancer has challenged Nick Saban in the Lemon Face Challenge.

Aubreigh Nicholas, who celebrated her 11th birthday Wednesday with her mother, posted a video on the Aubreigh’s Army Facebook page, challenging the Crimson Tide football coach.

Saban responded to the challenge a week later. 

Since then, hundreds have taken on the sour challenge in support of Aubreigh’s battle with DIPG. 

One of those videos posted on Aubreigh’s Army Facebook page is from the Mobile Police Department. MPD Chief Battiste nominated Mobile Fire-Rescue and Gus Malzahn. 

Aubreigh Nicholas was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG, a rare form of brain cancer last year. 

The Mobile community has been coming together to help raise money for Aubreigh’s treatment.
