Former cancer patient gives back

Posted:

Iowa City (KWWL) - A local cancer survivor is making christmas a little brighter for area hospital patients.

Nine-year-old Cameron Christiansen, beat cancer at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.

He helped spearhead a toy drive at his Muscatine Elementary School and Community to benefit pediatric patients at UIHC.

This year is the third year for the toy drive.

"If anyone else has something like I have, I want to make them feel like they're at home and not at the hospital," Christiansen said.

More than 500 toys for UIHC patients were delivered.
