Cindy Crawford visits children's hospital in Ohio
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Former supermodel Cindy Crawford has teamed up with a furniture store to donate $20,000 to a Cincinnati-area children's hospital.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Crawford toured cancer research labs at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in Corryville on Friday and met with a 6-year-old patient. The donation comes from sales of Crawford's new furniture line at Morris Home Furnishings in nearby Springdale. Crawford is in the area for the store's grand opening.
Crawford's younger brother, Jeff, died of acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 1975 just before his fourth birthday.
Crawford told those gathered that now, almost 90 percent of children with the disease are cured. She says: "We spend all this money on research ... and it does add up."
