Carolers cheer gravely ill girl
WEST READING, Pa. Thousands of carolers gathered Saturday night to sing outside the home of a terminally ill girl.
The singers are fulfilling one of 8-year-old Delaney Brown's wishes: to have a huge holiday sing-along outside her West Reading home. On her "Team Laney" Facebook page, a picture of Delaney giving two thumbs up was accompanied by the text, "I can hear you now!!! Love you!"
Delaney was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in May. Her family said last week doctors had given her only days to live.
Supporters have been trying to fulfill a number of Delaney's wishes. She chatted via video with singer Taylor Swift on Friday, her eighth birthday. - AP
