8-Year-Old Dies After Thousands Grant Her Dying Wish

January 01, 2014 2 min read

On December 21st an estimated 6,000 carolers showed up at the door of Delaney "Laney" Brown for the simple reason to sing her Christmas carols in West Reading, Pennsylvania.  In May, Delaney was diagnosed with an extremely rare from of leukemia and on the 16th of December her parents were told that she had only days or weeks to live.  She had one incredibly big wish though that she wanted to happen before succumbing to the disease. One of her bucket list items was to have the community sing carols.  They sung "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells," and "Joy to the World" among others and at the end the carolers finished with Happy Birthday because Laney had turned 8 the day previously. After the event, Laney's mother took to facebook to thank the community, “I thank you all for showing me and my family your love and support during this difficult holiday season, but please rejoice in the hope that one little baby gave all of us when he was given to save,” she said. “Please send us your prayers for faith and strength. Thank God everyday for all that he has blessed each one of us with. Our children are the best part of ourselves and we are all God’s children whom he clearly loves.” 1526487_338820669593776_244311518_n Barely four days later on Christmas morning Laney passed away.  Laney's story is such a tragic one...made all the more so by how very young she was.  Stories such as these aren't just tragic tales of a dreadful disease but rather a reminder for us all to treasure those we love and hold them close.  It's also the story of how a community can come together to accomplish something wonderful.  Never doubt the power of what people can accomplish if they are given the chance.
