Hannah and her family members received a heartwarming parade of community support from the Malvern Police and Fire Departments and the Malvern School District along with Make-A-Wish Foundation Mid-South sponsors and volunteers. Individuals gave signs and gifts to pour out a load of love.
The parade took place on Keith Street.
