Compilation of photos of AddysonAddy has a heart of gold with a passion to help those in need. Over the summer she learned about a three-year-old family member, Spencer, who is battling a rare Neuroblastoma Cancer.

On August 18, 2019 she made a home video for immediate family and friends asking for $15.00 donations to make chemo care bags for Spencer and other kids who are going through chemotherapy. Her goal was to get twenty bags sponsored. If she didn't get any donations she was going to pay for the chemo care bags herself. Her video went viral quickly. On the first day of her fundraiser she had all twenty bags sponsored.

Each bag includes a hand-made hat and blanket that she personally sewed with the help of friends and family members, comfy socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, crayons, coloring book, activity pad, card game, chap stick, candy, lotion, body wipes, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, a card from her classroom and Girl Scout troop, and each bag has a tag with the sponsor's name.

She learned how to operate a sewing machine and has been making hats and blankets after school and stuffing bags. As of today, she has 127 chemo care bags sponsored through the generosity of family, friends, organizations, companies, doctors, and compassionate strangers. Addy personally delivered the first 65 bags on September 26th to Children's Hospital in Detroit. Bags are also being shipped to Boston Children's Hospital and New Orleans, Louisiana.
