Patients at Christus Spohn's Cancer Center on Santa Fe were surprised Tuesday with some special "comfort bags," in honor of the life and legacy of local Zumba instructor Cristina Rodriguez, who passed away back in February.

Cristina's best friend joined Cristina's husband to hand out the comfort bags. The hope is that the items inside will help patients through their chemotherapy treatments.

Kiii News Reporter Bill Churchwell was at Tuesday's event and spoke with those who came up with the idea.
