Girl battling cancer gets wish granted

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The community is coming together to make a sick girl’s dream come true.

Simmie Gurule, who is battling a brain tumor, has always dreamed of going to LegoLand. Now, she is getting that wish granted.

She was first diagnosed in 2007. After intense treatment, she was deemed cancer free. But, the tumor has now returned. It’s more aggressive than ever and is untreatable.

Friends have put together a GoFundMe account to raise money for her dream trip and have quickly learned of the kindness of the community.

Simmi’s family says they couldn’t be more thankful to people and especially to the UNM Children’s Hospital who is treating Simmie. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
