Grab a box of tissues for this one. Five-year-old Claire Lankford of Dickinson, Texas, like so many other little girls her age, is into princesses. But unlike most kids her age, Claire is suffering from a rare, terminal cancer and has been undergoing treatment for a year.

This week, her amazing hometown rallied together to give Claire a very special day. Hundreds of people came out to treat Claire like a princess, with a parade complete with flowers, a horse-drawn carriage, her own special princess gown and lots of cheers.
