During the holiday season, lots of folks go out of their way to bring a little cheer to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital patients.
This season, one family brought cheer and also some hope for a cure.
Today, Doernbecher received $1,000 check to help cure cancer. The oversized check was presented by the brother and cousins of Riley Erin Arriola, a 9-year-old girl who lost her battle with cancer in 2010. The children, CJ, Megan and Paige, ages 6 to 9, raised the money by selling handmade Christmas ornaments in their Hermiston, Oregon, community.
KOIN-TV covered the donation. We’ll post it here if they put the story online.
In the meantime, a few photos:
