Salisbury Vigil Held for 12-Year-Old Brooke Mulford

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- The City of Salisbury remembered 12-year-old Brooke Mulford Monday night.

People gathered at the Salisbury City Park fountain to celebrate the life of Brooke, who died early Monday morning after a long battle with cancer.

Brooke touched the lives of people not just on Delmarva, but throughout the world.

"She was fearless, she was courageous, she was just so full of hope and she celebrated everyday and yes she was my idol," said Pat Snyder of Salisbury

Classmates of Brooke said she taught them to never have fear.

"She's probably taught me to be very brave and not be scared if anything's happening to you in the worst moments possible," said Elice Haistings-Denson.

"I think what we can learn from Brooke is strength, courage being fearless no matter whats coming your way. It's just to be fearless and face it and face with a smile on your face," said Daria Brumbley.

Brooks mother Amy has asked in lieu of flowers to make donations to The Brooke Mulford Foundation or toward researching a cure for neuroblastoma, the cancer which took Brooke's life.
