LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- You can make sure patients at Arkansas Children's Hospital have a happy Valentine's Day.

Because patients won't be able to exchange cards with their friends and classmates, the hospital is asking you to send a little love their way.

Eleven-year-old Kaitlyn Croslin of Conway visits Arkansas Children's Hospital for treatments. She told THV 11 about her favorite holiday.

"I would say it's Valentine's Day actually. I get Valentines from all my friends and stuff and the candy. I like chocolate," said Kaitlyn.

She is battling Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease affecting her lungs.

"Well I do lung functions, and they were down, and my weight was down," Kaitlyn said.

And, some of her favorite treats are e-cards coming from well-wishers.

Elizabeth Henry is with the Hospital's Foundation and said those online cards from all over the U.S. are greatly appreciated.

"There was a six-year-old from California who wrote a little knock-knock joke, and people from Nebraska and Florida and all over the country. Both adults and kids have been sending in Valentines," Henry said.

Kaitlyn's Dad, Danny Croslin, called her a warrior.

"I don't know how many times Kaitlyn has been hospitalized for the treatments. Quite a few," Croslin said, urging Arkansans to take a minute and click away for Valentine's Day.

"If there's anything extra they can do to help brighten the kids that aren't fortunate enough to be at home, you know maybe try to take a little extra time to get a little bit of that out," Croslin said.

"It makes me feel like I'm being thought about and prayed for and stuff," Kaitlyn added.

You can do it all online and it's free!
