Ella doll, which was first manufactured in 2012, was just distributed among hospitals around the U.S, however, after a cancer sufferer's mother, Melissa, started an online petition, Mattel are set to up their Ella doll output.

Melissa said that her four-year-old daughter, Grace, has come to terms with her hair loss and the cancer process because of the doll and if the pain that they are going through right now can help someone else, then it makes her feel like that the doll is worth it.
