LYNCHBURG, Va. -

The family of a Rustburg boy who's battling cancer is making the holidays better for other kids dealing with the same illness.

Nathan Norman's parents deliver Christmas bags to pediatric hospitals along the East Coast.  Each one is filled with toys, games, and a link to a website with information about Christian resources.

We've been telling you about the Norman's since last Christmas.  Nathan, who is now six, has been battling tumors in his brain and spine since he was two.

"While we never would have chosen this journey for ourselves, one thing we've learned through this is that no matter where God puts you or what circumstances He has you in, He wants us to glorify Him in everything that we say and do," explained Dawn Norman, Nathan's mother.

Students at Liberty Christian Academy collected items to fill more than 1,200 Christmas bags for the Norman's effort.  They also raised more than $4,000 for the Norman's "Hope 4 Tomorrow" charity, which raises awareness about pediatric cancer.
