On Wednesday, a community showed up en masse to show their love for 8-year-old Lillie Handley, a Holly Pond girl who has been battling cancer since she was three. The princess-themed parade was fitting for girl who loves being a princess and, thanks to her grandparents and Cullman Internal Medicine, has been feted at a Princess Party for the past four years.

“She’s our princess every day, but on this day, she’s everybody’s princess,” said Lillie’s mom, Kelly.
