The Bellwood community is rallying around 7-year old Maddie Shura, who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
The Northern Blair Relay for Life is incorporating a special lap for Maddie when they hold their benefit.
The 24-hour relay will start Friday, July 8 at 3 p.m. at the Bellwood Antis football field.
Maddie will be the focus of the 6 p.m. lap and the theme is Evie from “The Descendants”.
Evie herself will make an appearance and possibly some other Disney princesses.
Organizers hope to pack the field to celebrate Maddie and others who battle cancer.
