PALM DESERT, Calif. - The Desi Strong Foundation cut the ribbon on a new office in Palm Desert, and debuted the Desi Doll, a comfort item to help other children battling cancer.

Desi Cechin passed away in March at the age of six, after a two year battle against neuroblastoma.

Loved ones and community members are now helping other local families afflicted with major illness or injury through a foundation and a doll that bears her name.

Manny Marrujo and Melissa Neiderman of the Desi Strong Foundation explain how they're using funds to keep Desi's legacy alive.
