6-year-old battling cancer honored with special Duluth experience

DULUTH, MN– A six-year-old fighting a battle well beyond her years made a special trip to Duluth Monday.

Lillian, who is from Sauk Rapids, is receiving the VIP treatment on her trip through Wishes and More, a Minnesota-based organization that provides fulfilling experiences to children diagnosed with terminal and life-threatening illnesses.

She is battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), a cancer that is taking its toll on her young body.

After pushing through the challenges that come with chemotherapy, losing her hair, and still graduating from Kindergarten, Lillian and her family are getting a break with a family wish trip to Duluth.

Monday, she visited the Lake Superior Zoo. On Tuesday, Lillian and her family will head to the Great Lakes Aquarium. She also will visit the Children’s Museum, and get a ride on the North Shore Scenic Railroad.
