9-year-old girl gives up birthday presents to gather presents for kids at Golisano Children’s Hospital


A nine-year-old girl helped Santa this year by delivering a ton of Christmas gifts to Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Reagan decided that this year she would not get gifts for herself for her birthday, but that she would let her give gifts to children with cancer.

She knows the struggles associated with childhood cancer. Her brother Payton died of brain cancer eight years ago, so she understands how useful toys can be for a child dealing with something as scary as cancer.

Reagan and her mother arrived at Golisano’s with an SUV filled to the brim with toys worth $1,000.

Her mother Brittany said: “The joy I saw in Raegan’s eyes after receiving every gift in the mail, picking up a gift from the shelf and putting presents in the trash is a feeling that shines brighter than any birthday present.” also that she would have received. She couldn’t do it without the support of everyone who helped her achieve this!”
