Local law enforcement heard about the diagnosis and stepped up to help.

"Anytime when we ask her where she wants to go eat, she always says 'McDonald’s' so we always try to set that up for her,” Ranlo Police Department Sgt. Brian Holland said.

Police also took Klaire to Toys R Us for a shopping spree with her 3-year-old sister.
