8-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Collects Thousands Of Toys For Other Sick Children

If your life has been touched by cancer in any way, you know just how devastating the disease can be. Those who are fortunate enough to survive the illness are given a second chance at life and what they do with it is very telling of what kind of person they are. Just take this 8-year-old boy, for instance, who beat cancer and is using his time to collect toys for children in hospitals who are going through cancer treatments.

8-year-old David Lauritzen from Katy, Texas is making the news after donating thousands of toys to children battling cancer at Texas Children’s West Campus.

David’s Toy Project Inc.

This act of generosity is important to David because he has been in and out of hospitals for as long as he can remember.

“I had cancer and I knew that they wouldn’t feel good,” David said.

David and his parents founded the nonprofit David’s Toy Project Inc. which buys toys for pediatric cancer patients. David’s mother Samantha Lauritzen said the idea started a couple of years ago when she asked David if he was interested in doing anything to honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

“He said he wanted to make kids with cancer smile,” Samantha said.

The 8-year-old started out by collecting coins in a jar and it wasn’t long before they started adding up.

“He raised $1,100 that first year,” Samantha said. “He talked to people at the bus stop. He would be in Wal-Mart, asking people for their coins. Never did we think that he would be able to do what he’s done.”

Each year, the toy drive grew bigger and bigger. Last year, David raised $11,670.

David’s father Aaron Lauritzen was impressed by his son’s efforts.

“You just look at him and say, how does an 8-year-old do that?” Aaron said.
