HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and a local group is trying to raise money and collect iPads for children at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood.
Sarah Clein created Aaron's iPad Lending Library at Joe DiMaggio's after her 6-year-old cousin, Aaron Pinsky, was treated for cancer there.
Aaron is now cancer free and Sarah wants to supply the children's oncology floors with iPads so cancer patients can have a connection to the outside work, listen to music, watch movies, and play games. Aaron, himself, used an iPad during his treatments.
As of August 31, the organization "Team Aaron" has 6 iPads, but their goal is to donate 16 iPads to Joe DiMaggio's. They also plan to donate more iPads to other hospitals in Florida.
