McDONALD, Ohio - On December 12, 2000, Christine Price, Mary Bucan and Trina Socha gave birth to three little boys.
"If it was up to me I would have been delivering days sooner. I was late and Mary was early," said Christina Price. "I was a month early," said Mary Bucan. "Right on his due date," said Trina Socha.
Ian Socha, Jack Bucan and Adam Price are celebrating their 12th birthday on 12/12/12. To mark the big day, the three boys decided to throw a combined birthday bash and they invited the entire 6th grade class at Roosevelt Elementary School.
"This is the first time we've celebrated together before," said Jack Bucan.
However, there is one stipulation. Any gift that's brought to the party will be donated to children at Akron Children's Hospital Mahoning Valley.
"It is close to Christmas so I guess we can consider it a Christmas gift," said Ian Socha.
"I think they will feel happy because they might not get to spend Christmas at home and to know that they are going to get presents at the hospital," said Jack Bucan.
While it was the mom's original idea back in July, the boys have been on board with donating gifts to Akron Children's Hospital Mahoning Valley the entire time, finding even more meaning to the donation just one week after deciding on the idea.
Adam Price was forced to spend several days at the hospital after breaking his leg this summer.
"Each one of them were excited about the opportunity probably more than getting gifts themselves. They really were. To be able to give some gifts to someone else," said Christine Price.
"I am very proud of them. They're just good boys and they're good hearted kids," said Trina Socha.
