Claire Lankford, a 5-year-old girl with terminal cancer, got her fairytale ending on Wednesday when her hometown of Dickinson, Texas, helped make her a princess for the day.
For the past year and a half, Claire has been fighting a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma, which has no known cure. "Claire was cleared of cancer in June, but her scans in January showed five tumors in her lungs and lymph nodes," Claire’s mom, Patricia Lankford, tells Yahoo Shine.
