Mt. Prospect exhibits real community spirit for a cancer patient
Mount Prospect share in a very sweet and thoughtful moment that happened the other day. Jim Miller and District 13 crew along with MPPD did a motorcade that escorted a female student from her house past her school, Lions Park School to her last chemo treatment on Wednesday morning. All the students and staff of Lions Park School were outside to show their support to Lauren. I just want to recognize them for a job well done to the community.
