The West Reading traffic circle is going to be re-named in honor of a little girl whose courageous battle with cancer touched people around the world.

The borough council has voted unanimously to name the grassy area of the circle for Laney Brown.

A plaque commemorating Laney's life and one of the frog sculptures that are common in West Reading will be placed in the circle.

A ceremony is being planned to coincide with the borough's annual Christmas tree lighting in December.

Laney just turned seven when she lost her battle with cancer on Christmas Day.

Thousands of people fulfilled one of her dying wishes by singing her Christmas carols outside her home before she died.
