Ohio town creates early Christmas for ailing boy



Published: Wed, October 30, 2013 @ 4:40 p.m.

PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) — A northern Ohio community has decked the halls to provide an early Christmas for an ailing boy with aggressive brain cancer who said he wanted to be home for the holiday.

The Port Clinton News-Herald reports several tons of shaved ice was used Wednesday to mimic drifting snow outside 13-year-old Devin Kohlman’s window.

The city along Lake Erie has been trying to fulfill Devin’s wish since he returned home from a hospital Sunday. The city put up a tall Christmas tree within view of the family apartment where the teen is resting. Hundreds of people, some in Santa hats, gathered to sing Christmas carols. Santa even showed up — on a motorcycle.

Devin’s mother says seeing the supporters outside his home has been a big encouragement for him.
