Nacogdoches, TX (KTRE) - In Nacogdoches today, the South Nacogdoches County Volunteer Fire Department held a fish fry to raise funds and collect toys for the "B-I-G Love Cancer Care Toy Box."
B.I.G. Stands for Brook's Incredible Gift. Brook was a child who passed away from leukemia in September of 2006.
South Nacogdoches VFD Spokesperson, Shelly Cassada says she knows first-hand what these toys mean to kids. "Anytime they go in to have blood work done or chemo treatment, or an x-ray, or anything, any type of treatment, it's scary for those children and if you can give them a toy and turn those tears into smiles, it's priceless."
