NAUGATUCK, Conn. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An 11-year-old girl's fight with cancer pushed her to invent a life-changing device.

Kylie Simonds, from Naugatuck, Connecticut, has invented the chemo backpack.

She says her struggles with pushing around IV poles inspired her invention.

The backpack is a wearable, portable IV machine for kids receiving chemotherapy or transfusions.

The bag even comes in colorful designs.

Kylie's creative backpack has already led to several patent awards, and she is now raising money to create a working prototype.
