    Sadie Keller is wrapping up another successful Sadie’s Sleigh this Christmas. The annual toy drive supports children battling cancer.

    The 12-year-old started the toy drive four years ago when she was fighting leukemia.

    Worried Santa might not visit kids in the hospital at Christmas, she started collecting toys and the community stepped in.

    “My goal this year is 12,000 toys and we have about 9,000 toys and that’s amazing,” said Keller.

    A school officer and a student were injured at Wisoonsin's Oshkosh West High School Tuesday morning, when the student was shot after attempting to stab the office with a sharp object. The shooting comes just one day after a school resource officer at Waukesha South High School shot a 17-year-old armed student who refused to drop his weapon.

    All the toys will be donated to children fighting cancer at North Texas hospitals including Medical Center Dallas, Cook Children’s in Fort Worth, Children’s Medical Center Plano, Medical City Children’s and Our Children’s House Rehabilitation Center. 

    Sadie is now cancer free but started a foundation to support young cancer fighters throughout the year.
