Girl undergoing chemo brings 'survivor bags' to kids in hospital
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A girl from Rochester receiving cancer treatment returned to Golisano Children's Hospital Wednesday - not to receive, but to give.
Jenesis Shaw delivered 40 survivor bags and 100 toys for the other patients at the children's hospital.
The idea came to her when she was first hospitalized with a rare form of kidney cancer.
"I didn't have the stuff in the hospital when I came here because we didn't think we were going to be here," said Jenny. "We thought we were going to be here for like a day. We didn't think we were going to be staying there for like a week."
"We hope we bring a little spark of light to what can very well be a very dark time in life. So we hope it brings a smile and just a little extra cheer this time of year," said Mike Shaw, Jenny's dad.
The people who now help Jenny with her mission to give back call themselves Team Jenny Bean. That includes her family and her school, Nazareth Elementary.
Team Jenny Bean hopes to deliver survivor bags twice a year to the Golisano Children's Hospital.
Jenny herself still undergoes chemotherapy once a week. You can learn more about Team Jenny Bean here.
