CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A little girl battling stage four cancer was able to live out her dream of being a princess.

Callie Shaffer, 3, has been fighting Neuroblastoma, according to her parents. She was cancer free for a time, but the disease eventually returned.

One of Callie’s dreams has been to feel like a princess and play in a castle. Thanks to May We Help and Make-A-Wish Ohio, that dream came true.

Callie’s parents captured the reveal in a recent Facebook video.

They say she was treated like royalty and was able to enjoy princess outfits, a pink ball pit and a castle.

May We Help is a non-profit from Mariemont, described by leaders as “a volunteer organization that builds custom solutions for people with unique needs. Sometimes, a device is all that stands in the way of an individual with a disability or illness achieving independence or pursuing their passion. And when that device is not available in the marketplace, that’s when May We Help’s volunteers step in.

“They are a team of engineers, industrial designers, inventors, welders, woodworkers, seamstresses, doctors, occupational and physical therapists whose skill sets come together to design, build and deliver custom devices at no cost to hundreds of clients every year. In addition to building custom solutions we also have three other unique programs that serve the Cincinnati community and beyond.”
