The Life Flight helicopters at Saint Francis Hospital are being used for a special cause this Christmas.

The hospital is sponsoring an aerial tour of Christmas lights for young cancer victims. The company that provides the helicopters is paying for the expenses of the holiday flights. It's the first year of the event.

If the children are healthy enough, the tour lasts 15 to 30 minutes.
