ABC11 Together highlights good deeds, community needs, and how our viewers can help and three elementary school girls are using their craftiness to do just that to support a friend in need who has a rare bone disease.

Molly O'Neill, 7, Kylee Narron, 8, and Sophia O'Neill, 9, are all busy at work stringing bead bracelets together to sell to their neighbors.


"We heard that Abby needed to get rods in her legs. So we decided to do a charity for Abby," Sophia said.

Their business aims to help their friend Abby Norris. She's an 8-year-old little girl with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or brittle bone disease.

Abby needs to undergo surgery to replace rods that reinforce the bones in her legs and so far her friends have raised over $1,000 for the cause.

Despite the hardships she faces, friends say Abby always always has a smile on her face.

"She goes down the hallway and every time she comes down the hallway she's in her wheelchair and we have to back out of the way because she's very sensitive, but she makes it fun for us because she's like 'Beep, beep, Abby coming through,'" Sophia told us.
