Goody bags 110-year-old Alex Winkler with goody bags donated to The Tommy and Shirley Strickland Cancer Center.At only 10 years old, Alex Winkler of Tattnall County is making a difference in the lives of so many.

For his birthday, Alex wanted to make goody bags for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. His mom Jessi Winkler reached out to Samantha Walker, RN, BSN OCN, Director of The Tommy and Shirley Strickland Cancer Center, to see how Alex could help. So on July 21, Walker and her cancer care team unloaded 60 bags stuffed with comforting goodies for their patients.

When asked what made him want to do this for the patients, Alex said, “Both of my grandparents had cancer and got chemotherapy, and chemotherapy seems hard."

“I told him I wanted to grab him up and squeeze him,” said Walker. “The others were feeling the same.” Alex also told Walker that he wrote a note to go in all 60 bags that stated, “Hey! I hope that you are going to get better soon! I am praying! –Alex Winkler.”
