Hometown Hero: Lyndsey Jones
Watch the full video.
Lyndsey Jones is 16 years old. During her young life, this teenager has had nine surgeries.
Puddles is her plush toy that’s been with Lyndsey for 11 years. In and out of the hospital, Puddles was there to comfort her.
Last September at camp, Puddles went missing and was never found. Lyndsey was devastated. She said her "world fell apart."
The teen found a way to put her world back together and make the world better for other patients. She started Cuddles 4 Puddles. In one year, she's donated 120 plush puppies which she gives to patients at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and medical clinics. She knows those toys are great medicine.
If you'd like to donate a new, unwrapped plush puppy you can go to Cuddles4Puddles on Facebook or send the toy or a donation to:
