OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla — Employees at the OU Health Stephenson Cancer Center have come up with a way to cheer up children battling cancer.
There is a closet filled with toys in the middle. Every child who comes by, for treatment or consultation, is allowed to take a toy home.
One patient, 11-year-old Kensley Graham, realized that the collection was small. Kensley is a patient at the center who is being treated for a brain tumor. Inspired to help, Kensley planned multiple toy rides to fill the closet.
Kensley raised money from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office and the Choctaw Police Department at a recent “Holiday with Heroes” event. The group bought over $500 worth of toys to donate.
Employees at the facility decided to name the closet “Kensley’s Closet” in her honor.
