TODAY.com Features Abby Grubbs’ Team JOEY Story

Lutheran Children’s Hospital patient Abby Grubbs (at right in pink dress) 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, including Parker Irwin as Flounder, also entertained patients.
