CHICAGO -- At 115 Bourbon Street, it was Dancing for Emily time.
Hundreds of kids lent their support for Emily Beazley, a Mt. Greenwood girl who is battling Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Her friends are doing what they can to help make Emily's dream come true.
Emily wants to meet her favorite music star: Taylor Swift.
The last several days have seen a community come together for this brave girl. Just this week, Emily and her family learned chemo was no longer working and the cancer is growing.
Her parents are simply hoping Emily’s story puts a spotlight on childhood cancer.
Just outside her front door, the street has been named in her honor.
Only hours after that took place Friday, Emily’s friends and neighbors conceived of this new idea.
While she couldn't make it Sunday she was with everyone here in one form or another. The plan is to get word to Swift by way of her agent through stories like this.
