Cancer patient, 8, becomes princess for a day

Close to 1,000 people, mostly strangers, poured into the streets in Virginia to cheer on Tara, a very special 8-year-old battling brain cancer, as she paraded through town in her very own horse-drawn carriage. TODAY’s Jenna Wolfe reports.

>>> all it takes is just one act of kindness to make a difference. for a little girl in virginia battling brain cancer , that played out like a fairy tale . 8-year-old cara is in the middle of a year-long round of chemo. she put on a gown and was driven in a carriage throughout her neighborhood and close to 1,000 people, most of which were complete strangers, showed up to line the streets all there just to cheer her on. beautifulstory. gave me chills. so nice to see so many people turning out. people don't even know her just there to help.

>> one small act made her entire month.

>> that's great. i love it. thanks.
