Live Like Bella Foundation donates toys to pediatric cancer patients

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Live Like Bella Foundation is bringing the joy of the holidays to pediatric cancer patients in South Florida.

The Live Like Bella Foundation, along with Bomnin Chevrolet, collected toys to donate to pediatric cancer patients at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Wednesday.

The presents were delivered with a little help from ol’ Saint Nick.

“It’s a real blessing to be here today with Live Like Bella, giving to these kids this amount of toys,” said Arnaldo Bomnin of Bomnin Chevrolet. “Thank God we’ve got more toys than kids today! It’s a real blessing. The best blessing we can receive at Christmas.”

Along with getting gifts, the kids were able to meet Santa and even have their faces painted.

Live Like Bella was founded in 2013 in memory of Bella Rodriguez-Torres, who died of cancer at the age of 10 from rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive childhood cancer. In her six-year battle, she inspired millions to #LiveLikeBella.

The foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for pediatric cancer by funding innovative pediatric cancer research.
