Remember the young boy fighting Leukemia who was granted a wish to become "Batman" and save fellow San Francisco residents from danger?

Wednesday night News10NBC learned of another dream come true story for a young child fighting a devastating illness.

Five-year-old Claire Langford got to be a fairy tale princess for a day.

Hundreds of well-wishers lined up in front of her family's Texas home.

They waved pom-poms while she was escorted to a waiting horse drawn carriage. That carriage took her on a parade in the neighborhood, complete with cheerleaders and a marching band.

Claire is fighting a rare form of cancer.
