Who can forget 11-year-old Gage Driskell? He's a Parma boy battling brain cancer. We brought you his incredible Seven's Hero story that we called "Riding for Gage" a couple of weeks ago. Gage's dream was to go on a motorcycle ride, a group of local bikers made that dream come true. Over 80 bikers showed up to take Gage on a ride of a lifetime! You can watch the video here:

Now, a young girl in our community is stepping up to help Gage. Angelyn Wade saw his story, and wanted to raise some money for his medical expenses. After some brainstorming, she came up with the idea of a carnival!
