DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A motorcycle club is hoping to make one little girl’s dreams come true.

Damayah Don Marcum suffers from terminal cancer. The five-year old has one final wish: to ride a motorcycle.

The Forgotten Breed Motocycle Club heard about her wish and planned to take her for a spin Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, Saturday morning she was admitted to Hospice and was unable to take the ride. But it’s not stopping the bikers. They’re continuing their fundraising efforts and keeping their spirits up for Damayah.

“We’re blessed to have a lot of children of our own who are healthy and what have you. Every year we try to pick a child in this area. This is our 18th year coming up for the poker run, and we try to help all the kids we possibly can. Things that tug on your heartstrings is what we try to do,”said Sheila Bowling and Rodney Taylor of the Forgotten Breed Motorcycle Club.

Demayah isn’t the only little girl who the club is hoping to help. Forgotten Breed will hold a poker run for another child in early June at Germantown Pike.
