GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Buses filled with toys were delivered to the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, by a family who wanted to spread some Christmas cheer.

Dawson Babiak was diagnosed with leukemia when he was just four-years-old.

He started treatment for his cancer at Helen DeVos in 2014, and was officially declared cancer-free in March of last year.

This is the fifth year the Babiak family has held this toy drive, and it has gotten bigger every year.

Some of the toys will be taken off-site, so whenever the hospital needs more they will be ready for them.
