Woman's personal tragedy inspires her to help others

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - In honor of her 5 year old daughter, Payton, who died after a battle with brain cancer in 2007, Holly Wright wanted to make a difference.

Payton had a love of frogs so her mom created Forever Frogs.  It's a line of backpacks and bags with a frog sewn into each.

Wright also created the The Payton Wright Foundation to help other families battling pediatric brain cancer.  She donates a portion of all proceeds from Forever Frogs to the foundation.

On WBTV News Sunday Morning, Kristen spoke with Wright and Dina Haugstatte, President of Forever Frogs.
