Celebrate local boy’s Leukemia recovery with parade

Join family and friends in celebrating Edgemere 10 year old Ronnie Fortney’s end of treatment as he wraps up battling cancer for the last 3 and a half years.

Ronnie’s journey will be celebrated for the hardship no child should ever have to face on with a parade, but the community is also encouraged to send videos and letters of love.

Beep, honk, yell and wave in the drive-by parade on Monday, Jan. 10, which meets at 4:15 p.m. at Edgemere Bible Church, 3011 Ross Ave, 21219. Or, record a short video with your message to Ronnie and post in the Facebook event page for his recovery celebration, or send to his mom Jessica Smyth in Facebook Messenger. Also, you can mail a card to Ronnie wishing him well in his recovery or an 11th birthday card. Send a private message to his mom, Jessica Smyth, for the mailing address.
