WHEELING, W.Va. — Community members paraded down Wood Street in Wheeling tonight outside of a special little boy’s home.
This was all in an effort to support one local family.
Local law enforcement, EMS personnel, and firefighters drove by waving and giving him gifts.
Five-year-old Declan McCombs was diagnosed with stage four Neuroblastoma in 2018.
He’s been a fighter ever since, and even a local superhero. The family told 7News the Make A Wish program let Declan pick out whatever he wanted — thousand of dollars worth of gifts– and sent them overnight so he can have everything he ever dreamed of.
And tonight– he was greeted with a brigade of Jeeps and even a visit from a big man in a jolly red suit — Santa! The family says they can’t thank the community enough for their support in this difficult time, and says it won’t be forgotten.
