A company donates some unique dolls in support of children battling pediatric cancer at Children's Memorial Hospital.

The Endurance doll by Joi Doll Company is a hairless baby doll that speaks inspirational words.

Endurance is designed to provide strength with words of encouragement to both boy and girl patients fighting cancer.

Twenty five dolls were handed out Tuesday.

"I want to be able to help out as well as encourage all little kids that may be suffering from any type of illness to let them know that they can withstand, they are beautiful and they are still very special," said Latrese Joi Russell.

A portion of the proceeds from endurance will be donated to cancer research and treatment.
