Walkers carry lanterns with special meaning. White lanterns are carried by survivors, supporters carry red lanterns and people walking in memory of loved ones lost to cancer hold gold lanterns.

Nora Caporali led the way during the walk on the North Shore. It is a big honor for the 3-year-old, but it comes as she faces the fight of her young life.

Channel 11's Katherine Amenta sat down with her family. Watch her full story in the video above!
