Children’s Hospital Pleads “No More Pizza!”

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (WGGB) — A two-year-old cancer patient in California, who loves pizza, got quite the surprise this month.

The parents of Hazel Hammersley made a joke sign out of medical tape in her hospital room window that read “send pizza rm 4112.”

Photos of the sign went viral on the website reddit.com, leading to many people ordering pizzas to be delivered to Los Angeles Children’s Hospital’s room 4112. According to LACH more than 20 pizzas were sent to Hammersley.

The hospital released the following statement:

“Thank you to the compassionate Reddit users who saw this photo and responded with a pizza delivery.

If you’re on Reddit and have seen the adorable photo below, please help Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and patient mom, Lauren Hammersley spread the word:  You’ve made a little girl very happy but NO MORE PIZZA IS NEEDED.”

Hammersley is battling stage three neuroblastoma. Several other children in her wing joined Hazel for a pizza party.
