MECHANICSVILLE, Va. (WWBT) - A parade was held on Friday for a local 10-year-old cancer survivor.

Sawyer Perkins began her journey with an aggressive, rare form of brain cancer before she even started school. Over the years, she has dazzled the Richmond-area community with her bright smiles and resilience.

NBC12 recently told Sawyer’s story after she celebrated her 10th birthday back in July and received a pool for her birthday wish.

On Sept. 11, a parade celebrating Sawyer took place at the Church of the Redeemer along Meadowbridge Road.

Participants were asked to decorate their cars, and the event was hosted by Mason’s Toy Box.
