Little girl who received princess treatment for DC wish day, has passed away

- A 6-year-old Maryland girl battling brain cancer has passed away.

Last year, Eden Oyelola, of Upper Marlboro, wished to meet and ride a unicorn - with the help of FOX 5 DC and Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic her wish came true. Sadly, Eden passed away on October 20, 2016.

On her special day last year, Eden embarked on a princess scavenger hunt throughout D.C.-- it even included the White House! The hunt ended outside the Verizon Center, where Eden received her wish of riding a unicorn. Her family, friends, and a large crowd had gathered outside to cheer on the heartwarming moment.

In August 2016, Eden's brain cancer returned, and she was not in treatment. During her special wish day in December 2015, Eden told FOX 5's Sue Palka that her other wish was to ride her unicorn into the "enchanted forest." Her wish was granted!
Tragically on October 20, 2016 she passed away from brain cancer.
