Iolanthe’s Kids: AnjaLee

Meet AnjaLee. This little cutiepie is 5 years old, and she’s battling brain cancer. I’ve been emailing with AnjaLee’s Auntie Jess. AnjaLee doesn’t do pictures very often (‘she gets wicked shy and hides her face’), but she promised she would get a photo for us. I offered a couple of suggestions, one of which was to tell AnjaLee that the alpacas wanted to see a photo of her wearing her hat, and Auntie Jess wrote me back: “the sending a picture to the alpacas worked!!”

Boy did it ever! How gorgeous is this photograph?

AnjaLee’s hat was made out of Faith and Sunny’s fiber, spun by Mikie, and knit by Gloria. You can follow AnjaLee’s story on her facebook page and also learn more about her on her website:

Iolanthe’s Kids: Erin

Meet Erin. She is 10 years old and this AMAZING little girl received her goodybox right after having a terrible reaction to her chemotherapy. Her cousin, Vanessa, writes: “Your gift gave her great joy and helped pull her up from a very bad state. I can’t thank you enough!!”

When she first wrote me a few weeks ago to request a goodybox for Erin, she told me this: “. . .she’s nuts about jokes and pranks, she plays them on all the Drs. when she’s in for chemo LOL). I wish you could meet her, she’s a ray of sunshine!”

This photograph, to me, is positively priceless.
