Santa visits ALL child

Mrs. A had to quit work, because she had to care for and travel three hours each way to St. Louis Children’s Hospital to get frequent treatment for her son who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL.) Travel and medical expenses put a huge strain on her family. The whole family, including two other children, had to spend Christmas in the hospital as the infant was getting a bone marrow transplant with a sibling as the donor. Santa’s Helpers made it our mission to make sure the three children got all of their presents on their wish list so that their Christmas could remain special despite being in the hospital.
