ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It happened just after 3:30, Friday afternoon.
“Avery” a 4-year-old Leukemia patient at St. Louis Children’s Hospital rang the bell to mark her last round of chemotherapy.
Standing by for an echo, were dozens of well-wishers near the hospital’s new 12-foot metal bell, hung on a billboard at I-44 and Big Bend Blvd.
An estimated five-to-10 kids complete chemotherapy at the hospital, each month.
All will get to ring a bell and set off the new billboard chime.
