A Gibson County girl battling a rare and terminal form of cancer will return home from Riley's Children's Hospital on Sunday.

Gibson County Sgt. Bruce Vanoven says 6-year-old Hailee Cunningham will be getting a special escort on her way back into Gibson County.

The sheriff's office, along with surrounding fire departments, will escort Hailee to her home in Ft. Branch.

Deputies say the planned route is Interstate 69 to State Road 168 and then State Road 168 to US 41. The escort will then take US 41 to County Road 800 South.

Officials say they expect Hailee and her family to be in the area around 2:00 p.m.

Family members have said there's nothing more doctors can do for Hailee.
