HERMON - Many of us are used to driving, shoveling, and playing in snow...but imagine never having seen the white stuff? Well that was the wish of a young Florida girl who's battling cancer. Our Erin Thomas reports.
Sophia Galvan may be only 6-years-old, but she is one tough cookie...fighting a form of cancer which involves soft tissue tumors, in kids. So when asked her wish... it was a simple request- to see snow and build a snowman.
A police escort showed Sophia and her family to Hermon Mountain, where the Ski Patrol and other volunteers waited to greet her for a fun-filled afternoon.
With a pack of dogs and sled in tow, Sophia was whisked up the mountain, where a family of snowmen awaited her arrival.
And after flying all the way from Tampa...seeing this winter wonderland was a dream come true.
