BENNINGTON, Neb. (WOWT) — A Bennington neighborhood recreated Halloween Monday for a very special boy. It was an amazing Halloween that may be this boy’s last.
Faron Schreiner is a 7-year-old full of friendly confidence.
“I just want to introduce myself,” he said. “Hi, I’m Faron.”
About three weeks ago, Faron was running around and playing like any other little boy.
“I’m trying to make as many good memories as we can for him,” said Faron’s mom Sunny Schreiner.
He’s just been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Only about 300 kids are diagnosed with it every year.
“He was in the hospital during Halloween, which is like his favorite,” said Sunny.
On October 30th Faron was playing with family friends all day but started to fall asleep much earlier than he normally does. After rushing him to the ER they didn’t know if he would ever wake up again. Doctors were able to treat him but he didn’t make it out of the hospital in time for Halloween.
On Monday, thanks to the love of about 50 neighbors he didn’t miss out on his favorite night. It was a very special Halloween for Faron.
