Bailey & Peppermint

A little girl who is bedridden, sees the world through the travels of an elf

Lately, in the mornings or following her afternoon nap, Bailey has been uttering a familiar refrain: Where’s Peppermint?

Bailey Bennett is an adorable brown-haired 8-year-old who lives with her mother in Oak Grove. Bailey loves horses and rodeos and the Disney Channel, especially “Good Luck Charlie” and “Jessie.”

But Bailey also has stage-four neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

So earlier this month, in an effort to make her holiday season special, an anonymous group of do-gooders known as the Elves of Christmas Present helped arrange for Bailey an early Christmas visit from Santa.
