HANOVER, Va. -- A young Hanover County cancer patient needs your help to win an online video contest tonight.

Iris, a 13-year-old from Beaverdam, is currently a patient at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Maryland.

She made this video for the White Cloud "Real Comfort, Real Kids" contest on Facebook, which includes an entry from all the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

When asked how to make her pediatric oncology unit more comfortable, Iris proposed "dressing up" the treatment rooms!

The top three hospitals with the most votes will win $30,000 to help bring more comfort to their kids.

Iris's video is currently in fourth place. Voting ends on June 30, so there are just four days left to help.
