Six-Yr-Old Sells Pink Pumpkins for Breast Cancer

Ad Feedback

A little girl from California used her love of gardening to raise awareness for breast cancer.

Chloe Slaton, age 6, set up a stand on a sidewalk to sell pumpkins.

But they were not ordinary orange pumpkins like the traditional fall decorations. They're white but will be turning pink in a couple of weeks, the color used for breast cancer awareness month.

Chloe donated all the money she raised from the pumpkin stand to Niki Reyes, a local radio personality. Reyes was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and has had several treatments and surgeries.

"I do have a significant (amount) of medical bills and that's what she wanted to do," Reyes said. "She did this all on her own. At 6 years old to have compassion and empathy - I don't know adults that have that."

Chloe's mom, Veronica, was also touched by her daughter's creativity and generous heart.

"We are just beyond proud of Chloe to so selflessly do something like this," she said.

Chloe grew about 60 of the pink pumpkins in all and raised $791 for Reyes's medical bills.
