Reddit Gives Cancer Patients a Pizza Party

At the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles, one little girl named Hazel Hammserley sent out a message that the Internet responded to in droves. She wrote the message "Send Pizza Room 4112" on her hospital room window, hoping for a delivery to cheer her up during the day of aggressive cancer treatments. What happened next was amazing.
Reddit users saw the image... and then pizza deliveries began pouring in for little Hazel. She and her friend on the floor got so much pizza, mother Lauren Hammersley actually had to request that people stop sending pizza.
Hazel and her roommate enjoy piles of pizza the Internet users sent them.
The pizza was a response to their adorable message of "Send Pizza" written on their hospital room window.
Hazel couldn't be happier... but now she has a little too much pizza than she knows what to do with. Sometimes, the Internet can be awesome.
If you want to give something to Hazel (but not pizza), check out her fund page here. She is batting a a high-risk, Stage 3 Neuroblastoma and needs all of the thoughts, prayers and support you can give.
Although she'll probably want the pizza, too.Source
