BONNE TERRE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri community has come together to help a 7-year-old girl battling cancer fulfill her unique dream.
The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Mo. reports that Summer Warren is a first-grader at North County Primary School in Bonne Terre. She is undergoing treatment for an inoperable tumor wrapped around her brain stem.
When the Make-A-Wish Foundation interviewed Summer, she said her dream was to ride a unicorn over the rainbow with her mother.
Art teachers at her school and volunteers from the community turned the gym into a giant castle with a rainbow-colored floor. A horse was brought in and transformed into a unicorn.
Last Wednesday, students from the school lined up, each carrying a wand, to help Summer’s fairy tale wish come true.
