JOHNSTON, Iowa — It’s a final wish for a very sick little girl, to see a sea of motorcyclists paying her a visit.

These days, three-year-old Kelly Yeager doesn’t smile much. She has a disorder that weakens her skeletal system and causes seizures so violent that her bones break. The seizures started about two years ago. Doctors still don’t know why. What they do know is Kelly doesn’t have much longer.

There’s one thing that does make Kelly smile though. She’s fascinated with motorcycles. So this Sunday, bikers from all over the area are welcome to come to ChildServe on Merle Hay Road in Johnston at 11:00 a.m. to show their support for Kelly, and to give her a reason to smile.

“It would be a dream come true,” Kelly’s mother Jenna says, “It would be a dream come true for her. And I would love to see that for her.”

A large group of bikers will be meeting at the Flying “J” in Altoona at 10:30 Sunday morning, and plan to arrive at ChildServe on Merle Hay Road in Johnston at 11:00 a.m. All bikers are welcome.
