Girl Gives Hope to Kids Battling Cancer

FORT WAYNE, IND.—Not all healing is about medicine. A little girl’s selfless birthday wish helped heal the spirits of cancer patients at Lutheran Children’s Hospital on June 12 during a very special Heroes Foundation visit.

Lutheran Children’s Hospital patient Abby Grubbs recently finished 2.5 years of cancer treatment and is giving back by collecting LEGOs to provide to cancer patients instead of receiving gifts for her 10th birthday. During the event, Wagon Wheel Little Mermaid cast members also entertained patients.
