A real-life Cinderella Story

Peoria, Ill - Halicyn Minor isn't your ever day freshman in high school.  She's strong, a joy to be around, and is currently undergoing treatment for cancer.

On Saturday she was surrounded by people who love her dearly who wanted her to experience  something she has been dreaming of, going to her very first homecoming at Havana High School.
"I've been wanting to go to this dance," Minor said. 

She said she wasn't sure if she was going to be able to go.

"Today I was just very surprised I'm able to go, but I'm also very happy I can go and spend time with my friends,"Minor said. 

She had the dress, the hair, and the glass slippers. It was a real-life Cinderella story.

"I feel like Cinderella," Minor said with a smile. 

And just like Cinderella, she had a specific curfew.

"I can stay as long as I'm feeling up to it, I just have to be back by midnight."

Halli said she loves surprising her friends.

"I sent my best friend a message saying, 'make sure to send me pictures!' like trying to make it seem ike I'm not going, and they all told me they'll send me pictures and wish I could be there, but I can't wait to surprise them."

And that's exactly what she did. Halli was greeted by smiles and hugs and her wishes came true. 

She went to her very first homecoming, and danced the night away.
