Iolanthe’s Kids: Jisele

Meet sweet Jisele, she is 5 years old, battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Tonight I received this lovely message with this gorgeous photo of her from her Dad:

Hi Myla, We would like to say thank you so very much for the goodybox you sent for our daughter Jisele. She absolutely loved it. We just saw your web site and I must say what a wonderful thing you do there at the ranch for childhood cancer. The world needs more good people like you all. Enclosed is a picture of Jisele with her hat on. She also has a support page set up to the public on Facebook. Just type in Jiseles leukemia battle in search bar. Thank you again for a wonderful surprise for our warrior princess.

This is what Iolanthe is all about, right here.
Please go show your support and give Jisele’s Facebook page a like here: Jisele’s Leukemia Battle.

Jisele’s hat was out of Faith’s fiber, spun and knit by Andrea.
The beautiful keychain in her lap was custom designed for her by Scott Dobek of the Dusty Newt.

Iolanthe’s Kids: Reese

Meet 3 year old Reese. Her Mom wrote: “Reese LOVED her new hat and box of goodies. She couldn’t wait to try out the play-doh! Thank you so much Summer and Janice!” 😉

A little more about Reese from her GoFundMe page: Reese was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in January, 2014. She was 2 ½ years old at the time. It has been 252 days since her diagnosis. Reese is receiving wonderful care at the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, both inpatient and outpatient. She has undergone countless chemotherapy treatments, two bone marrow aspirations, many blood transfusions, spinal taps, steroids, surgeries and therapy treatments. Her parents have stayed by her side, watching immunity numbers go up and down and reporting to family and friends on her blood counts and energy levels. Reese will continue to have these treatments for the next year, possibly longer. Reese’s parents have missed a lot of work to stay overnight for dozens of long and short stays at CHOP. Unfortunately, medical and other associated bills don’t get put on hold. If you can help Reese and her family to cover some of these costs, please donate. Any amount helps. Prayers for Reese’s recovery are also very much appreciated! Thank you! You can also show your support for Reese on her Facebook page.
