Town Celebrates Christmas Early for Terminally Ill Girl

Savannah Lewis, who has a rare form of cancer called Ewing’s sarcoma, may not get another Christmas.

So neighbors in the 16-year-old’s Texas town turned out to celebrate the season early with an exhibition of Christmas light, which were donated by the family of a girl who had succumbed to the same disease.

The gathering meant the world to Savannah, who had a message for her community: “Thank you so much for doing all this for me. You don’t know how much it means.”
