Adyson Pitts

Lynn Haven , Florida

Adyson Pitts, 14, of Lynn Haven, Fla., an eighth-grader at Surfside Middle School, began packing "Bags of Love" when her little sister was diagnosed with leukemia, and she saw that many families who had to live near a hospital for weeks at a time didn't have an opportunity to pack items for their extended stay. She has collected, prepared and recruited family and friends to help deliver more than 200 bags of toiletries, snacks, blankets, activities and more to Sacred Heart Hospital.
