The motorcycles came to the St. Peters duplex of Mia Bell and her 8-year-old daughter Chloe on the morning of Christmas Eve, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
They were there thanks to a 3-year-old charity, the Reindeer Ride, supported by a church motorcycle group, the Faithful Few. The group gives Christmas presents and about a year’s worth of household necessities and gift cards to families with children undergoing cancer treatment, and one year’s recipient then nominates the next year’s family.
Chloe was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer in 2017. After some progress, she relapsed in June.
“We had remote school and COVID on top of this, so it’s a lot of stress,” said Chloe’s mother, who works full time in quality control for a home warranty company.
Chloe is undergoing radiation treatment and had to be hospitalized for seven days earlier this month because of a complication.
After about 20 minutes of gift delivery, Santa gave Chloe one she was allowed to open right away. It was No. 1 on her Christmas list: a Baby Alive doll.
