(WJBK) -

The fourth grade class at Hoover Elementary in Livonia came up with the idea to stuff stockings and give them to all of the kids who are undergoing treatment this holiday season.

Evan Westphal, 9, delivered more than 100 stockings to Beaumont Children's Hospital Wednesday. Evan has been getting treatment for three years for his leukemia. His mother, Janice Westphal, tells us Evan is in remission and only has a few months of treatment left.
