SEWELL, New Jersey -- An 8-year-old boy from South Jersey is using patches to raise money for cancer patients.
Jaden Hummel is a little guy with a big heart, and after meeting a police officer at the 9-11 Memorial and Musuem in New York City, he decided to collect patches from different law enforcement agencies around the country.
Jaden also wanted a way to raise money for cancer research. So, he came up with the idea of Patches for a Promise.
"I really feel bad for the people who have cancer. So, what I did was ... I started to collect patches, every patch I get I donate a dollar to childhood cancer (research)," Jaden said.
In the last six months, Jaden has received close to 150 patches and is growing.
