Iolanthe’s Kids: Ryan

Meet Ryan.

This superhero is 10 years old, battling CML (Chronic Myeloid Leukemia). His Mom told me he loves building things, so I found him this awesome Legos book so he can teach his legos new tricks (how awesome is that?) 😉 His Mom wrote: “Ryan loved his sweet gifts from Iolanthe Alpaca Ranch! Thanks Myla Kent for your thoughtful package. He was excited to build a lever with his gift! He loved the pictures of the Alpacas too!”

Special thanks to Scott for Ryan’s custom keychain, my friend Rob for Ryan’s vintage Hot Wheels, and Alison for spinning and knitting Ryan’s hat, which was made out of Hope, Harmony, Sunny, *and* Mischief’s fiber.

Please go show Ryan and his family some facebook love on his page Ryan’s Warriors.

Iolanthe’s Kids: Griffin

Meet Griffin. This awesome 7 year old superhero is battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma. His Mom wrote, saying: “Griffin LOVED opening his box of goodies… thank you VERY VERY MUCH. Thank you soooo much for loving our son!!!” and sent us this gorgeous photo of him wearing his hat made out of Sunny and our Ice Cream blend fiber (the stripe), spun and knit by Alison.

Griffin loves animals (especially sharks) and superheroes, so we filled his goodybox with all kinds of fun things, including: a gorgeous handmade scuba-diving frog pillowcase from Abby and the C+A Project, a custom-made keychain from Scott Dobek, an Avengers Coloring Book from Jason + Michelle Adams, special matchbox cars from my friend Rob, and a bunch of other goodies. We’re all so glad Griffin loved his goodybox!

Very special thanks to Carol and the 1 Million for Anna Foundation for sharing Griffin’s story. xo, M
