RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Christmas came early Saturday for children battling cancer in Raleigh.
Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas hosted more than 100 pediatric cancer patients and their families in North Hills.
They had food, games, photos, carriage rides and, of course, a visit from Santa Claus. The organization has been in North Carolina for about two years.
They said events like this are essential for the kids.
“I watch these children day in and day out and the battle they’re fighting and how much they go through in this treatment process, and to have a day like today where they can just laugh and smile, it just makes our hearts happy and warm, and makes us fight even harder for each and every one of them,” said Laura Allen, executive director of Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas. .”
The event was held at the Renaissance Hotel.
