SAN ANTONIO -- If you played with legos as a kid, you might remember how much fun and joy they brought you. For children stricken with cancer, that joy is not only wanted, but needed as they undergo treatment.
Today, an organization called "Legos for Leukemia" visited Methodist Children's Hospital in the Medical Center and delivered 115 boxes of legos. The organization was started in February by Rebecca Goldsmith, who lost her own niece to cancer a year ago.
While the group knows the toys are entertainment for those who have to stay in the hospital, they say the legos also act as building blocks helping patients on their road to recovery.
"It's really nice to see how many great people there are in this world, you know?" said Kaylee Carew, a teenager who received legos today. "They brighten our days."
