UPDATED: Gathering planned at 5:30 p.m. for girl with cancer


The family of a 12-year-old Galion girl who was diagnosed last week with four tumors is asking the community to gather at 5:30 p.m. today at Heise Park to show support for her.

Melanie Wheeler, a sixth-grader at Galion Middle School, is being released later this afternoon from Nationwide Children’s Hospital to come back to her Galion home.

Participants are being asked to meet at the Heise Park pavilion, where they will line the road through the park.

Participants are also asked to wear grey and orange to show the colors of Wheeler’s cancer. Signs of support are also encouraged.

A GoFundMe page for Melanie can be found here.
