(Newser) – After six months in the hospital being treated for brain cancer, 4-year-old Jillian Massey was sent home for the holidays. But she didn't forget the friends she'd made at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and wanted to give 50 holiday presents to the children still there, the AP reports. Instead, more than 3,000 will be given out after Jillian's story, and the Amazon wish list she created, went viral. Many people donated gifts, and Jillian and her family will deliver them to the hospital Monday. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
