After winning $1,000 at a local scavenger hunt, 8-year-old Wyatt Erber decided to pay it forward -- literally. According to TODAY.com, after Wyatt collected his winnings he asked his parents, "How much chemotherapy will this buy Cara?" Wyatt's neighbor, 2-year-old Cara Kietly, is battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Community efforts to help the Kietly's through this difficult time inspired Wyatt -- he knew exactly why he wanted to take part in the scavenger hunt and was confident he would win. He told TODAY.com, "I thought this would help them buy medicine for Cara." Doctors believe she has a 90 percent chance of being cured.
