Thousands of Carolers Gather to Fulfill Girl's Dying Wish

There doesn't appear to be any shortage of heartwarming stories this holiday season. In the latest display of ice-melting kindness, thousands of carolers gathered in West Reading, Pa., on Saturday to fulfill a dying girl's Christmas wish.

Delaney Brown, an 8-year-old suffering from leukemia, had included carolers on a "bucket list," and organizers expected "a few thousand" to take part in the event. Close to 10,000 people showed up.

Brown's family, which has been updating a "Team Laney" Facebook page, posted a photo of her giving two thumbs up as she heard the caroling outside her home.

On Dec. 17, doctors gave her "two days to two weeks to live."
