LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Just over a year after her death, a two year old's legacy will live on at the new cancer center that bares her name.
The Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Kosair Children's Hospital was dedicated today. Addison died in May 2011 after a five month battle with cancer.
In December 2010, Addison was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer that produced a tumor from her neck to her stomach on both sides of her spine. Over the next five months, she was in and out of the hospital.
The community rallied around the family. Addison's parents, Wes and Kelly Blair, are teachers in Elizabethtown, and other teachers donated their days off so that the Blairs could enjoy their last months with their daughter.
Her parents used money left over from various fundraisers, turning them into life insurance policies that grew to three million dollars.
The Blairs donated all the money to the hospital and most of that is going towards the unit renovation.
The unit includes the Louisville skyline and a theme of flight, which were Addison's favorites.
