[CBS 12 - 2014-06-14] -- What started as a local girl's attempt to help a family friend battle with cancer has now grown to an annual event.
Three years ago, 8-year-old Jessica Nedry started making bracelets to help a family friend. Now those bracelets are part of a nationwide campaign to show support to our troops.
Yesterday afternoon Jessica and plenty of other folks, started making colorful bands to send to troops.
With the help of kids and families across the country, her goal is to make 10,000 of them to show her support.
