Wish to Ride a Unicorn Over the Rainbow Granted for 1st Grader with Cancer
PARK HILLS, MO – A Missouri first grader got her wish to ride over a rainbow on a unicorn in front of her entire school last week.
Summer Warren is 7, and has an inoperable cancer wrapped around her brain stem. She told the Make-A-Wish Foundation about her wish. Park Hill’s Daily Journal reports the charity didn’t know what to do about it. So, her entire school banded together to make Summer’s dream come true.
The North County Primary principal, art teachers and community volunteers transformed the gym into a castle on Wednesday. Summer sat on a throne of glitter before her classmates who were carrying wands.
Principal Emily Bach started the ceremony with a story. She read, “Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess named Summer.” Then the gym full of students waved their wands to help a unicorn appear. A horse with a horn of glitter appeared through the doors of the gymnasium.
Summer got on the horse wan rode on the rainbow road lined with students. The principal then decreed, “Princess Summer was known from that day forth as Queen Summer, for she helped all other kingdoms to see light in us all.”
