Local nurses are spreading holiday cheer by wrapping gifts for kids who are battling cancer or who have gone through treatment.
Nurses a part of the Oncology Nursing Society took time out of their night to wrap gifts for an annual holiday party.
Dozens of young cancer patients and their families will be treated to dinner, dessert, crafts, and gifts from Santa.
The party and holiday gifts take on a special meaning for the children.
"The biggest thing is that it's a time for them to feel normal and just to enjoy themselves and be a kid and not worry about treatment and it's also a good time for them to reunite with families they went to camp with during the summer," said Nurse Practitioner Mary Motto Kimoto.
The holiday party will be held December 3, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. in San Luis Obispo.
If you're family has faced a battle with the disease, you still have time to RSVP.
