Walking to support a little girl's journey to fight cancer
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Walking to support a little girl's journey to fight cancer.
Friends and family celebrated 6-year-old Lucy Wallner this afternoon at Southwind Park with the Love for Lucy walk and benefit.
Little Lucy was diganosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May.
She'll have to go through a series of chemo and medical procedures over the next two years.
Organizers are amazed by the support of the community.
"It's amazing how the community has come together in just a few weeks to support this family. It's been an amazing response on radio and tv. We've been everywhere and people are showing up," said family friend Amy Raike.
If you'd like to help the Wallner family, you can head to any united community bank location and donate to the Lucy M. Wallner charitable trust.
