Dying Pa. girl gets Christmas carol wish granted

Thousands gathered to sing outside the 8-year-old's home after doctors gave her only days to live

WEST READING, Pa. — Thousands of Christmas carolers are gathered to sing outside the home of a terminally ill Pennsylvania girl.

The singers are fulfilling one of 8-year-old Delaney Brown's wishes: a huge holiday sing-along outside her West Reading home. On her "Team Laney" Facebook page, a picture of Delaney giving two thumbs up was accompanied by the text, "I can hear you now!!! Love you!"

Delaney was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in May. Her family says earlier this week doctors gave her only days to live.
