Willow Stine was diagnosed with leukemia on Friday and turned 3 on Sunday. Most of her family, including her sister and dad, couldn't get to the hospital to celebrate because of Hurricane Irma.
Kelly Boyd, a child life specialist, and other hospital staff made a birthday party for Willow, cake and all.
