DRIP SPOT: AMBER FETT

KEYE has a feature on Amber Fett, a Dripping Springs teenager who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and who is awaiting a double lung transplant. Through the years, the Christmas break from school provided the best opportunity for Amber to get her lungs cleared, which required lengthy hospital stays. During those stays, she noticed other kids at the hospital who didn't have anybody or any gifts for Christmas day, and she decided to change that. Amber created the non-profit Amber's Angels, now in its fourth year, to deliver Christmas gifts bags to children at Dell Children’s Medical Center. Get the complete, and inspiring, story here.
