There's a 5-year-old in Oregon, Illinois named Harley who has one very specific wish; to have a swing set with an elevated playhouse, spiral slide, and swings, and guess what? Her wish officially comes true this weekend!

What Makes 5-Year-Old Harley So Special?

Besides being an adorable, sweet 5-year-old girl, Harley is also a courageous fighter. In February of 2020, Harley was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system, and now Make-A-Wish Illinois is stepping in to make Harley's biggest dream come true, and they need our help to make Harley's day extremely special.

Make-A-Wish Illinois plans to unveil Harley's brand new playset that has been built at her "Nana's" house in nearby Nachusa, IL this Sunday, November 14, starting at Noon. What they need us to do is line the parade route starting at Harley's home in Oregon, to her grandma's house in Nachusa. Here are the specifics if you want to come and show your support for this brave little girl who is currently cancer free!

Noon – Limo picks up Harley at her home in Oregon. Community members are invited to line the Route 64 between 5th Street and the bridge and possibly bring signs of support to display.

12:30 PM Planned arrival for wish reveal at Harley’s“Nana’s” home with a wish party planned.

 

The community of Oregon, Illinois has really stepped up to support Harley, and now it is our turn to join them. Congratulations on being cancer-free, Harley! We hope you have endless hours of fun and make many sweet memories on your brand new swing set! 😘
