A young girl from Mason says she's overwhelmed by the support she's getting from the staff at Sparrow Hospital where her mom works. 13-year-old Grace Bushey has leukemia. A blood drive at the hospital Friday was dedicated to her. Grace was diagnosed on Valentine's Day and has been going through intense treatment since then. It's likely continue for another two years. "I've tried to stay pretty much as positive as I can, you know, if I do have a bad day. There's some bad days I'm not feeling good, you know, you don't want to do anything, but I try and get up every day feeling good and do something," said Grace. The blood drive is over but if you'd like to help Grace and other children in similar situations you can donate blood, money, hair, wigs and even old X-Boxes or iPods. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
