Mom Calls on Mattel to Produce More Bald Barbies

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," bald Barbie dolls will be distributed to hospitals nationwide to help inspire little ones losing their hair from cancer. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Four-year-old Grace Bumstead suffers from a rare form of leukemia requiring aggressive chemo.

Her mom Melissa says Mattel's special Barbie doll Ella has helped Grace cope with the loss of her hair.

Mattel created Ella, who has no hair and wears wigs, a couple of years ago.

But when the mom found out the Los Angeles Children's Hospital was down to six dolls, she started a petition for Mattel to produce more.

The company heard the call and is getting Ella dolls into hospitals nationwide.
