TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Jefferson junior high student is using her summer break to give back to cancer patients. Abby Stuck is looking to make a total of 200 care packages for chemotherapy patients in Toledo.

The care packages are filled with coloring books and crayons, hand sanitizer, Kleenex and other small items. She can make them for adults too - the grown-up version has Sudoku puzzles instead of coloring books.

Abby says she found the idea on Pinterest.

She said she was inspired by other family members who have fought the disease before.

"I have family members who have passed away with cancer. I have a grandma, who's battling cancer right now. I know this would, help her to know that I am thinking about her and that I'm also thinking about others." said Abby.

Abby has done the research and says it only costs about 8-dollars to put together one of the care packages. Most of the supplies can be found at your favorite dollar store.

She is off to a great start, but needs help to reach her goal of passing out 200 packages.

Anyone who is interested in Abby's cause, can email abbyshelpinghands@yahoo.com or visit her Facebook page. Also, donations are being accepted at Express Lube at 4936 Douglas Road, in Toledo.
