 Last wish: Thousands gathered Saturday evening outside the West Reading, Pennsylvania home of 8-year-old Delaney Brown, who is dying from a rare form of cancer 

Thousands of Christmas carolers gathered Saturday evening too sing outside the home of a terminally ill Pennsylvania girl.


The singers are fulfilling one of 8-year-old Delaney Brown's wishes: a huge holiday sing-along outside her West Reading home.
Delaney was diagnosed with a rare of leukaemia in May and given just days to live on Wednesday.

Saturday’s Christmas miracle came just one day after her eighth birthday, when Delaney fulfilled another wish by speaking with pop superstar Taylor Swift via video chat.
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!’

The heart-warming event was born after Delaney’s family heard her grim prognosis last week, which her mother shared via Facebook.

‘Today we were told the worst news of our lives,’ wrote Delaney’s mom Jennifer Brown. ‘Laney has 70% cancer cells in her blood. If they would treat the cancer the virus that she has would kill her. And if they treat the virus the cancer will kill her.’

Delaney suffers from a rare form of childhood cancer called acute myeloid leukemia with monosomy 7, ‘making her quite rare,’ according to the Facebook page.
Just 10 children a year are diagnosed with the illness in America.

The sweet but tough little girl, who loves fashion and swimming in the ocean, has now been through five rounds of radiation and a stem cell transplant. 

Photos of the beautiful gathering, which over 4,000 people indicated on Facebook they’d attend, show throngs of supporters outside Delaney’s home—many in Santa hats and holding candles as they gave the brave girl her Christmas wish.
