Girl battling cancer gets pizza party at hospital

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES, CA (WFLA) -

A little patient at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles got more than just one cheesy pie she had asked for, KTLA 5 News reported.

Hazel Hammersley and her mother are staying at Children's where Hazel gets chemotherapy to shrink a stage 3 cancerous mass around her adrenal gland before the mass can be removed.

They put a sign in Hazel's window that read "Send pizza to room 4112" to make Hazel's stay more fun. And soon enough, people were sending her pizzas to her room and likes on her Facebook page, KTLA reported.

"She woke up from her nap to the tons of pizza in a room and she thought it was great," her mother Lauren Hammersley said in an interview to KTLA. "She ended up having three slices and had a party for all of her friends and there was music playing, she had a great time."

The story went viral online. The pies and the Facebook likes made it easier for Hazel and her family to get through tough times, her mother said adding she was very grateful to all people who showed support to them.
