CARMEL, Ind. - An Indiana mother is hoping to spread a little bit of love this Christmas in memory of her son.

Last year, 6-year-old Brooks Blackmore was diagnosed with two Stage Four brain tumors.

Despite treatment, Brooks continued to decline.

"This kid would go to radiation, then go to chemo and come home, hardly hold his head up. He would say, 'Mom, can we go to Target to get a Hot Wheel?' So of course, I would pack him and go," Tracey Blackmore, Brooks' mother, told FOX 59.

After his death, Blackmore says she decided to help other children fighting cancer.

“It’s easy to sit around and be sad all the time, but the way I feel Brooks the most is through being happy and joy and helping others and I feel him close to me,” said Blackmore.

She is hiding Hot Wheels all over town with a little note about Brooks and St. Baldrick's Foundation, a childhood cancer research organization.

Since his death, Blackmore has raised nearly $20,000 for childhood cancer research.
