Pizza Party! Reddit Users Flood Hospital for Young Patient

Hazel Hammersley is only 2-years-old, but she's facing a big challenge, a rare type of cancer that affects infants and young children.

To help her through her chemo- and have some fun- Hammersley's mother and grandmother used tape to spell out a message on her hospital room window:

"Send pizza, room 4112."

It was a joke and they thought nothing would come of it. However, after a picture of the message ended up on the social media site Reddit, it went viral and before long, pizza after pizza started showing up.

Hazel was overjoyed. Now there have been so many pizzas, the hospital has respectfully asked they stop. But if you would like to help Hazel visit facebook.com/ourlittlehazelnut and http://www.ourlittlehazelnut.blogspot.com/.
