On Way To Chemotherapy, 1st Grader Finds Way To Help Homeless

Posted: Updated:
Fall in love with Ella. Fall in love with Ella.

A New Jersey girl undergoing chemotherapy treatments has found a way to help the homeless while also taking her mind off of her own challenges.

Ella Wilson and her mom, Terri, drive into Philadelphia every Thursday for treatment for neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on the nerves.

One day, the first grader noticed a homeless woman holding a sign.

After asking her mom what the woman wanted, the two decided they'd bring food with them on their next stop into Philly.

Ella and her mom returned to the same intersection where they saw the woman, Morgan, and brought her food.

Now, every Thursday the two bring food and blankets with them on their way to Ella's treatments.

You can help Ella raise money for neurofibromatosis research on her Facebook page "Hope for Ella."
