(Scroll down for video) A family was very touched by the love and kindness shown to their daughter who is fighting cancer.

People in a small town in Auburn, Maine, decided to turn back the clock and organize a neighborhood Halloween celebration for a girl who missed out on trick-or-treat because of her illness.

7-year-old Kinzie Frey loves Halloween, but this year, she was forced to spend Halloween in a Boston hospital, fighting for her life.

Frey, who suffers from neuroblastoma, was suffering from pneumonia and the flu while receiving treatments for the disease.

Holly Bosse said that her daughter already underwent seven rounds of chemotherapy, three major surgeries, two bone marrow transplants and 12 rounds of radiation.

When she returned home, her aunt took to Facebook to ask people if they would participate in the child’s trick or treat.

About 20 families jumped on board. Some dressed up for the occasion and many others brought candy and treats for Frey, who was also dressed up for the occasion.

Kinzie was dressed as Star Wars villain Kylo Ren, which Bosse said she thought was appropriate since her daughter was “fearless.”
