HENRIETTA (KFDX/KJTL) — After spending the first week of her life in a special care nursery at United Regional, a little girl is spending her 10th birthday giving back to kids like herself.
Instead of accepting gifts, Laycee Littlefield is collecting donations for Childrens Miracle Network at United Regional at this year’s Turkey Fest in Henrietta.
After being born, Littlefield spent 6 weeks in Level 2 Special Nursery Care at United Regional Hospital and said that collecting money for kids in the hospital is her way of giving back.
“What really got me into it was I was born there and they have a lot of kids that go in there every single day. With a lot of sickness and they need a lot of money. So I had a goal that was 4,000 and now I have a goal that is 7,500 dollars,” Littlefield said.
Littlefield invites all to come by her booth at Turkey Fest in Henrietta this weekend where sample home baked goods will be available.
Donations can be made by:

- Mailed to the United Regional Foundation at 1600 11th St., Wichita Falls, TX 76310
