BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Our Lady of the Lake and St. Jude held a "No More Chemo" party for 5-year-old Lily Raffray of St. Amant, La. Wednesday.
Lily was shy when St. Jude volunteers, staff from OLOL's Cancer Center, and Louisiana State Police all cheered for her happy news that she doesn't have to undergo anymore chemotherapy.
She adores stories of unicorns and princesses, and she was in awe of what came after the cake and presents at her party. A beautiful white unicorn was waiting for her outside. She had seen them on television, but this one was real.
Gently the horse's owner and Lily's mother convinced her this unicorn could be ridden.
This is one memory that will last her a lifetime.
She has Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She will hear about the scans for her cancer at the end of the month. She is done with chemotherapy, but it is possible she will need radiation.
