Iolanthe’s Kids: Emily


Emily was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare aggressive tissue cancer. This Tinker Bell -loving superhero endured 71 infusions, 58 chemotherapy treatments, 28 radiation treatments, 53 overnight stays in the hospital, and 14 cycles of treatment for 43 weeks during treatment. We’re so thrilled to have Emily as one of Iolanthe’s Kids.

Emily has relapsed, you can learn more about the next steps in Emily’s Journey by following this link.


Special thanks to Scott Dobek for the gorgeous custom name keychain and to Jo Basford for the Enchanted Forest postcards. Emily’s hat was spun and knit by Alison out of Sunny’s fiber, with one of Marian’s gorgeous hand-felted flowers in Tinker Bell’s peridot.

Iolanthe’s Kids: Layla

This little sweetheart named Layla loves cats, horses, zebras, Rapunzel and Belle (how cute is that?) and finds our alpacas to be adorable 😉

Special thanks to Scott for Layla’s beautiful gift, and to Michelle R. from my office for the My Little Pony Unicorn. Layla’s hat was spun and knit out of Harmony and Faith’s fiber by Susan.

Special thanks to 1M4A for sharing Layla’s story.


You can show Layla and her family your love and support on her facebook page, Love 4 Layla.
