6-year-old Cancer Patient Starts Kaia Rose Toy Drive in Boston

Kaia Rose Sooknanan-Andrew was honored for her work today at the Boston City Council.

On Wednesday Boston City Councilor John Connolly presented 6-year-old Kaia Rose Soonknanan-Andrew with a resolution honoring her for founding of the Kaia Rose Toy Drive.

Kaia Rose, of Dorchester, has been battling a cancerous blood disease and last year, Kaia’s only Christmas wish was her friends in the hospital could have toys. For the second year in a row, Kaia and her mom recruited "elves" to donate toys to the children who are patients at the Tufts Pediatric Hematology Cancer Center.

With Kaia Rose Sooknanan-Andrew are her family: her mother Dana Sooknanan, grandmother Judy Rudder, her father Anthony Andrew, her twin brother Keston Sooknanan-Andrew, Malisa Schuyler of Tufts Medical Center, and City Councilor John Connolly.
