Kids battling cancer took time for a special holiday tradition Sunday, as they decorated cookies with members of the Buffalo Sabres.

The group from Camp Good Days and Special Times got together with the players at St. Joseph Collegiate Institute on Kenmore Ave.  They decorated cookies that will be given to top Camp Good Days donors to thank them for their help over the year.

Organizers say it's events like these that help the kids take a break from the hospital rooms and doctors visits, and let them just act like kids.

"Many of these children have been in the hospital for a long time during the holiday season, this gives them a little respite," explained Camp Good Days Regional Director Lisa Booze.  "They're having fun, a little bit of normalcy doing cookie baking."

Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth was at the event decorating with the kids, and even let them cover him with flour at the end.

"It's great to get your mind on something else for a couple hours, and spend some time with the kids, they're a lot of fun," he said.
