Snow for Child with Cancer

Today's "Good Stuff" - Maddie Higgins, 6, long wished to play in snow. Unfortunately she also has an aggressive form of brain cancer and lives in Arlington, TX, so her goal of seeing snow is impossible, right?

Wrong.

A dedicated group of volunteers called "Kinsley's Kure" ordered 20,000 pounds of ice to be shaved and pumped on to the little girl's lawn. It was needed relief for a child that has already been through two brain surgeries.
