Christmas came early for children at Lurie Children's Hospital as a mother keeps a promise to her late son that no child goes without a toy on Christmas.

Sue Staehely delivered the donated gifts to the children at the hospital on Wednesday.

Back in 2006, her son Mark lost a six-year battle with cancer when he was just 18.

Mark spent the holiday at the hospital after his first stem cell transplant and vowed to return each year with presents.

Sue has continued the toy drive ever since in honor of her son's memory.
