She's a little girl, with a huge heart, a birthday wish and an outlook on life that all of us can learn from.

Brooke Hester can show off her work of making blossoms.

Brooke's Blossoms is her foundation, she gives little girls with cancer flowers and bows so they never stop feeling beautiful.

"The girls who lost their hair love the blossoms," said Brooke.

Brooke has been battling cancer since 2010, she was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma and it has spread throughout her body. She calls cancer the lumpies.

"They hurt you and sometimes they make you vomit or make your hair fall out," she said.

But one day in the hospital she met another little girl who was admiring her headband.

"My mom whispered in my ear that she was looking at my blossom and i gave it away to her," she said.

Since that day Brooke has been sending her blossoms all over the world--turning winter into spring.

She just celebrated her 5th birthday and had just one wish, to makes these blossoms.

The flowers are created through donations and for the first time, a New York City company called Princess Expressions who is joining her mission.

"I watch how she feeds off of the joy of others she wants to give she wants to give to anybody and everybody," says Brooke's mom.

Brooke also has boutonnieres for boys, so they don't feel left out.
