This awesome 8 year old superhero is battling Ewing’s Sarcoma. His Mom Patricia told me he loves Pokemon so I found him this awesome Deluxe Essential Handbook so he can ‘catch them all’ ;). Tonight she wrote: “We just got home from the hospital and Elijah opened his package. . . He loves it!!! And said to tell you thank you!”
Elijah’s hat was spun and knit out of Harmony’s fiber by Alison. Special thanks to Scott Dobek for the custom keychain and Rob for the vintage Hot Wheels.
Please go show Elijah and his family support on his facebook page: Elijah’s Journey.
Yesterday (3/21/2016) Natalia was The Truth 365 Child of the Day, and as I read her story I wondered if she was the same Natalia who was the 5th recipient of one of our goodyboxes. . . so I wrote to her newly started Facebook page to see and sure enough, it was the same Natalia! Her sweet sister Elisa had written to request a goodybox for her in October 2014, and long story longer, here we are in March 2016 and it was so great to reconnect with her family and learn more about this brave little girl. Natalia has been through so much in her battle with Osteosarcoma — you can read her whole story here. Natalia’s hat was spun and knit by Lora, out of Summer’s fiber. Special thanks to her Mum (and her sister) for the beautiful photo and sharing Natalia’s story with me. You can learn more about Natalia on her facebook page, here. xo, M
