NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A little girl is on a mission to spread hope with one sweet treat at a time.
Doctors diagnosed 10-year-old Hope with cancer last October.
Because of her continuous hospital stays and visits to Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, she couldn’t sell Girl Scout cookies — something she loves.
With the help of her parents and donors, she collected boxes and handed them out to other children battling cancer at CHKD.
Every box has a note and a message.
“CHKD did so much for me, and I wanted give back to them and I thought that donating cookies would be a good idea,” she says. “Everybody that I meet, like non-cancer people, they always think I can’t do something because I have cancer and they think I’m limited and that hurts my feelings because I’m not, even though I had cancer.”
On Tuesday, Hope received the news that she is now cancer-free. She says she’s excited to do the things she once couldn’t do and that includes handing out Girl Scout Cookies.
