American actor Matthew Lillard shared a heartwarming video of his neighbours throwing a surprise parade for a girl who returned home after her last chemotherapy. Lillard said that the girl, Coco, was suffering from Ewing’s sarcoma, a type of cancer that forms in bone or soft tissue, and finished her last chemo on March 24.

The community was kept under lockdown due to the novel coronavirus outbreak but they decided to welcome her with a unique social distancing parade. The 56-seconds clip has been making rounds on the internet and has garnered around four million views. The girl can be seen riding the shotgun and gets completely surprised after she finds people lining up on either side to welcome her.
