JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 21-year-old cancer survivor is giving back to the hospital where she was treated.
Taylor Scheibe surprised patients at the Wolfson Children's Hospital on Friday. She brought cart after cart filled with toys.
It's been 10 years since Scheibe was diagnosed with cancer and was a patient at the hospital.
Scheibe said she knows firsthand how difficult it is for a child suffering from a fatal disease. So she organized "With Love," a toy drive.
She also is working to redo the playroom in the oncology unit.
Before bringing the toys, Scheibe said it would be an emotional experience.
"It will be overwhelming for me because when I see kids like that, I do connect. I connect to their pains and I can connect to what they want," she said. "So it's going to be hard."
"But at the same time, I know if I can make them happy, at least just for a moment, by giving them these toys, I couldn't ask for more," Scheibe added.
Scheibe said Sunrise Surf Shop, Great Atlantic Outfitters, Infusions Hair Spa and Fathers' Harbor Academy helped with the drive.
