10k carolers gather to sing for dying girl

WEST READING, Pa. — Thousands of Christmas carolers gathered to 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. 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!”

Nearly 10,000 people gathered at the girl’s home, according to WFMZ.

Delaney was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in May. Her family says earlier this week doctors gave her only days to live.

Supporters have been trying to fulfill a number of Delaney’s wishes. She video chatted with singer Taylor Swift on Friday, her 8th birthday.
