Lubbock Girl Raises Money to Help Bring Cheer to Local Cancer Patients

A 7-year-old Lubbock girl brought a bagful of entertainment into Joe Arrington Cancer Center on Thursday, so she decided to fix the problem on her own. "In the treatment room, there are VCR's, but no movies. And we got movies we thought the hospital would like for their patients," says Kaitlyn Hibdon, a Murfee Elementary student.

So, Kaitlyn came to Joe Arrington on Thursday with 25 movies in that grocery bag, presenting them to the nurses so that patients like her mom would have something fun to watch while undergoing chemo or other treatments.

This, after raising $250 by getting people to join the Lynetta Hibdon support group selling t-shirts with her mother's name, the best medicine she could give a young mother fighting stage three breast cancer. Kaitlyn says that she will continue to lead the Lynetta Hibdon support team as her mom will still need aggressive treatment in the coming months.

HealthWise, we'll be there, learning more about this rare and aggressive cancer and watching how a strong support team can make all the difference in fighting cancer, together.
